Registration for Year 7 in 2018
Entry to Poole Grammar or Bournemouth School in Year 7, September 2018
Please note due to an upgrade to the Bournemouth website, test registration for year 7 in 2018 will be unavailable until 6th July 2017, apologies for any inconvenience caused.
There is one set of selection tests for Poole Grammar School, Bournemouth School, Bournemouth School for Girls and Parkstone Grammar School (the ‘Consortium’). This will save children whose parents wish them to be considered for admission to more than one selective school in the Consortium from taking multiple tests for those schools.
The tests will be taken at the school with whom the parent has registered their child. All applicants to a Consortium School must complete a Registration form to be eligible to sit the entrance tests.
Boys will sit the entrance tests on Saturday, 23rd September 2017 at either Poole Grammar School or Bournemouth School. The tests may only be taken once by any boy. Details of the tests and arrangements for the day will be sent to parents and students on Friday 15 September 2017. The results of the tests may be used to establish your son’s eligibility for a place at both Poole Grammar School and Bournemouth School.
Bournemouth Grammar School will be managing applications for both schools. The Registration Form provides the option to take the test at either Poole or Bournemouth Grammar School. Applicants will be considered for entry to both Grammar Schools depending on their score. Parents will then need to make a formal application using the Common Application Form through their Local Authority, which must be received by 31st October 2017
Application for Access Arrangements
If your son has a Special Educational Need and/or disability, or is in receipt of an Education Health Care Plan, you must download and complete the Application for Access Arrangements form, enclosing the relevant evidence and return it for the attention of the ‘Admissions Registrar’ of the school you have chosen for your son to sit the entrance tests.
This information must be received no later than 12 noon on Monday 11 September 2017.
