Each of the grammar schools give some priority to 'Pupil Premium' applicants.
Pupil Premium is additional funding paid to schools by the Government to improve the attainment of disadvantaged children. For the school to receive Pupil Premium funding, the child must have been registered and in receipt of Free School Meals (due to family low income for example) at any point in the last six years. This is different to Universal Free School Meals which all children in Reception - Year 2 receive regardless of income.
You will receive your child's test score by Friday 16 October 2020 prior to you completing your Local Authority preference form by 31 October 2020. Parents/carers can then decide whether or not to include any of the Grammar Schools in Birmingham on their home Local Authority preference form. If your child does not achieve the qualifying score or above they will not be considered for a place and you should not list the school on your child's preference form.
All of the Grammar Schools in Birmingham welcome applications for places in their Sixth Form. Please contact the school that you are interested in for full information or visit the school’s own website.
