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 will soon be available to download below, as well as on request from the Academy,  at least one week before the assessment in July 2019.   Application forms will also be available during the Year 5 Open Evening early in July 2019.   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.
