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 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 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.
