Gloucestershire Grammar School Entrance Test for Year 7 from September 2022

Please be advised that the registration for and administration of the Admissions Entrance Test is all carried out by the Gloucestershire grammar schools themselves and therefore any queries in reference to the Entrance Test should be directed to the grammar schools.

The registration window for the 2022 Admissions Entrance Test has now passed and the Entrance Test was sat on Saturday 11 September 2021.

After the test, every grammar school you have opted to share your child's score with will send you confirmation of whether your child has achieved a qualifying score for that school or not. The grammar schools are planning for results to be sent out by email after noon on 14 October 2021.

It is important to note that obtaining a qualifying rank on the Entrance Test is not an automatic offer of a place in the grammar school(s). Parent/carers must also list the grammar school(s) on their secondary school application form to their home local authority between 6 September 2021 and the closing date of 31 October 2021.

Please note - your child will not be offered a place in a grammar school if it has not been listed on your secondary school application form.

Parents who wish their child to be considered for admission to a grammar school for Years 7-11 should contact the relevant school.
