If your child is unable to sit tests on Saturdays for religious reasons we are able to arrange an alternative date. Please tick the box on the registration form and email a supporting letter from your religious leader if you would like us to do this. An alternative date will not be offered without a supporting letter. This letter must be submitted no later than Friday 29 June 2018.

If your child has a disability and/or requires additional resources to sit the test, please email admissions@ske.uk.net to request a disability form (A1) to complete.  You MUST also tick the relevant box when registering your child's details for the test. It is the parents / carers responsibility to ensure that this form(A1) has been requested and returned by the deadline.

You will be asked to describe your child’s disability and to supply medical evidence.  A panel of specialists will meet following the A1 form deadline to assess each request

The deadline to return A1 forms is Wednesday 20 June 2018. 

If this form has not been completed and returned to the Grammar Schools in Birmingham by the deadline NO special arrangements can be considered for your child in this test.

Please note that this date is earlier than the test registration deadline and that information provided after the panel has met cannot be considered.


You must contact the office on 0121 415 6004 if your child is unwell.  You can contact us on the morning of the test or no later than Monday 10 September 2018 by 4pm.

A medical note will need to be submitted for an alternative date to be arranged.

An alternative date will not be offered without medical evidence.
