Kendrick School is part of a group of Grammar Schools who will be using a common admissions test on Saturday 16th September 2017 for the September 2018 Year 7 intake. This group includes Kendrick School (girls), Reading School (boys) and the group of four Grammar Schools in Slough – Herschel Grammar School (mixed), Langley Grammar School (mixed), St Bernard’s Catholic Grammar School (mixed) and Upton Court Grammar School (mixed)). In addition there are other schools in the wider geographical area who will be using the same test on the same day.
Registering for the Admission Tests
Online registration for the test will open on Monday 1st May 2017 and close on Tuesday 20th June 2017. Late registrations will not be accepted.
Please click here to access the Kendrick School online registration form.
Sharing of Scores
Where applicants wish to considered for more than one school in the Consortium, the raw marks will be shared with the other schools for inclusion in the appropriate standardisation process. If you are applying for more than one school, you MUST register with EACH school, according to their admission policy. Your daughter’s score can only be shared with those schools for which they are registered. Scores cannot be retrospectively shared after the standardisation process has taken place.
This means that if you wish your daughter to sit the test at Kendrick School and share her raw score with the Slough Consortium you MUST register an application with them on their online admission form but indicate she is sitting the test at Kendrick School. Likewise, if you wish your daughter to sit the test at one of the Slough Consortium schools, you must complete the Kendrick School online registration form but indicate she is sitting the test at the Slough Consortium.
Kendrick School operates a “designated area” as part of its oversubscription criteria.
Places will be offered to applicants who are ranked high enough according to the entrance test scores and who reside within the designated area. Only if there are further places available will applicants who live outside the designated area be considered. The address which will be used for consideration to be living within the designated area must be the applicant’s permanent address at 31st August 2017. The exception to this is if the family are returning from abroad to a previous home within the designated area (documentary evidence will be required to confirm this), are Crown Servants or members of the Armed Forces.
The designated area consists of all postcodes starting:
