Y6 Assessment Date for Visual Arts:

Arrangements for the Aptitude assessment

If you would like your child to participate in one of the aptitude assessments, please complete an Aptitude application form and return it to school by 18th September 2020.  Please find below a copy of the Aptitude application form.    Also, the application form will be sent out to all Primary schools and they will share it with their Year 6 students.

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.
