An alternative date will not be offered without a supporting letter. This letter must be submitted no later than Friday 28 June 2019.

  • Results and Offers


    You will receive your child's test score by Friday 18 October 2019 prior to you completing your Local Authority preference form by 31 October 2019. 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.
