Arrangements for the Aptitude assessment

If you would like your child to participate in one of the aptitude assessments, nearer the time, please complete an Aptitude application form and return it to the academy (Main Reception).     

Taking the assessment is not an application in itself;  assessments will only be considered when the Local Authority's Common Application Form has been received by the LA and the Academy has been notified, confirming that an application has been made.
