Grammar Schools Taking the Same Test on the Same Day
Kendrick School is part of a group of Grammar Schools who will be using a common admissions test on Saturday 15th September 2018 for the September 2019 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 Slough 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.
Some parents may be considering including either one or more Slough grammar schools in addition to Kendrick School on the Common Application Form. Kendrick School, the Slough Consortium of Grammar Schools and Reading School will be using the same test on the same day, and it is not possible for students to sit the test more than once.
However, parents whose children sit the test at Kendrick may request that the raw score is shared with the Slough Consortium of Grammar Schools for inclusion in their standardisation. Similarly, parents whose children sit the test at the Slough Consortium may request that the raw score is shared with Kendrick School for inclusion in the Kendrick standardisation.
In either of these cases, parents would subsequently receive two sets of results, one from the Slough consortium and the other from Kendrick School. These standardised results may be different, as the same raw score is being compared to those of a different cohort of children.
Registering for the Test
In accordance with the School Admissions Code (December 2014), the school is required to conduct the Entrance Test so that parents can be informed of the outcome before the deadline for submitting the Common Application Form to their home LA (31st October 2018). Parents/carers must submit an online registration form to Kendrick School to register for the Entrance Tests before they submit the common application form to the home LA, if they wish to know the outcome of the test before completing the school preference form.
Completing the Registration Form
The Registration Form for Kendrick School (Intention to take the Entrance Test) will be available to complete online from 1st May 2018 and must be submitted by midnight Tuesday 19th June 2018.
PLEASE NOTE: Online registration will close at midnight on Tuesday 19th June 2018 and late applications will NOT be accepted.
