The Priory Ruskin Academy will admit up to 21 students in Year 7 on the basis of their aptitude for Sport or the Visual Arts. Parents who wish to seek a place at the Academy for their child based on aptitude for Sport or Visual Arts should present their child for assessment.  

The aptitude test for current Year 5 students (looking to join the Academy in September 2018) will take place as follows:  

Visual Arts portfolio submissions should be handed into the Academy Main Reception no later than Friday 7th July

Sport & Health aptitude tests will take place on Thursday 6th July at 3.45pm and Saturday 8th July at 8.45am (NB you only need to attend one of these dates).

Arrangements for the Aptitude test

If you intend for your child to take the assessment, please complete and return the Aptitude assessment application form, which is available to download below as well as on request from the Academy,  at least one week before the assessment in July 2017.   Application forms will also be available during the Year 5 Open Evening on June 29th 2017.   Taking the assessment is not an application in itself;  assessments will only be considered when the Common Application Form has been received, by the local authority and the Academy has been notified, confirming that an application has been made.
