Registration for Year 7 in 2023

Register your child for testing here:- Year 7 LATE TEST Registration Form For 2023

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, 24 September 2022 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 Monday 16 September 2022. 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.  Late registration must be made by midday 27 January 2023. Late Entrance Tests are scheduled for Tuesday 21 February 2023.

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 31 October 2022.

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.
