In line with Department for Education guidance on coronavirus, the selective assessments for non-Catholic grammar schools are expected to be moved from September 2020 to October 2020. Once the arrangements have been finalised, parents of registered candidates will receive an email with their child's test date, venue and the arrangements for the assessments. These arrangements are subject to change taking into account government or local guidance.
Due to the COVID-19 situation there will now be unavoidable delays to progressing school admission appeals this year. Appeal hearings will be administered via telephone or online, or in writing for the foreseeable future. An Appointed Clerk will contact parents regarding the arrangements prior to the hearing date.
