Arrangements for the Aptitude assessment

If you intend for your child to take the assessment, please complete and return the Aptitude assessment application form, available to download below as part of our Aptitude Assessment letter, 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 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.
