Pupils with Additional or Special Educational Needs:

Any child with an EHC Plan who wants consideration for a grammar school place will need to register for testing by 1st June, like other children.

If you feel your child requires any special arrangements please contact school and we will discuss your child’s needs with you. It is then the school’s responsibility to contact the Admissions Team by 10 July 2020 to apply for comfort adjustments (such as changing the appearance of the papers or allowing for separate supervision or rest breaks) or additional time.

The Admissions Team make it clear that;

“Special arrangements are not offered to enable children to get the highest score they possibly can: they are provided only where the severity of the child’s difficulties means that, though academically able, they cannot reasonably be expected to attempt the tests in standard format or under the prescribed conditions.”
