Entrance Test for admission into Year 7 in September 2020
How will I know if my Registration Form has been submitted successfully?

When you completed your Registration Form and you clicked the Submit Registration button, if your form had been successfully submitted, you will have been taken to a “Proof of Submission” page.

This will display your child’s name, a unique Proof of Submission number and the date and time that the form was submitted. You MUST print or photograph this page.  In the event of any dispute regarding the submission of your on-line registration form you will need to send us this page as evidence.  Without it we will not investigate any claims that an on-line form has been submitted before the deadline.

If you left any required fields blank, instead of the “Proof of Submission” page, your registration form will be re-displayed and any errors will have been highlighted in RED at the top of the form.  You needed to have completed these required fields and then clicked the “Submit Registration” button again.  You would then have been taken to the “Proof of Submission” page.  This was explained in the notes on the on-line form when you registered.

Important Notice about Confirmation emails

Most Registration Forms were processed within twenty-four hours and a confirmation email sent as soon as it has been processed.

If you have a copy of your “Proof of Submission” page (see above) and checked your spam, bulk and junk folders and have not received a confirmation email after three days please follow the instructions above regarding “Safe Senders” and then click send us an email confirming that you have done this and requesting a second copy.

Responsibility for ensuring that your registration form has been received and processed before the deadline (12 noon on Friday 28 June 2019) rests exclusively with parents / carers.  If you do not contact us we have no way of knowing that there is a problem.

Please do NOT send in a duplicate Registration Form.  Duplicate Registration Forms will be deleted automatically without being processed.

Deadline for submitting On-Line Registration Forms is 12 noon on Friday 28 June 2019.   

No exceptions will be made for registration forms not received and processed by the deadline.

Changes to Shared Schools will not be accepted after the deadline.
Registration closed at 12 noon on Friday 28 June 2019

No new registration forms will be processed and no changes to “shares” will be accepted.

If you have missed the deadline you need to contact the individual schools for advice.  Please do not email us as we cannot help you.

UPDATE - 21 July 2019

All Parents / Carers have now been sent an email with details of their child’s Allocated Test Centre.  If you have not received this email it will be as a result of you failing to follow the instructions when you registered and adding our email addresses to your Safe Senders.

We will not re-send any of these emails.  Each Allocated Test Centre will be contacting the Parents / Carers of those children sitting with them at the beginning of September with details of the arrangements for Test Day and you will now need to wait until they contact you.

We send emails as part of the registration process. It is essential that you receive ALL our emails.  Some ISPs (email providers) block any emails received from any email address that is not in your Safe Senders.  This is a world wide problem and outside of our control.

To avoid this happening to you before you start to complete the On-Line Registration Form please add the following email addresses to your “Safe Senders”.  This should ensure that all our emails are delivered to your Inbox.

If you have already registered and you have printed or photographed the “Proof of Submission” page (see below) but not received a confirmation email after three days please follow the instructions above regarding “Safe Senders” and then email us to confirm that you have done this and to request a second copy.

If you do not receive a confirmation email from us it may have gone to your spam, bulk or junk mail folder.  If you find the email there, your ISP or your own software spam-blockers or filters are diverting our email.  We have no control over this -  only you or your ISP can change the settings.  Please follow the advice above and add our emails to your “Safe Senders”.

Do not contact us requesting a second copy of your confirmation email unless you have already followed the instructions above about Safe Senders.  If the original confirmation did not arrive neither will any copies until our email addresses are in your Safe Senders.
After the close of registration at 12 noon on 28 June 2019, please check this website ( regularly for any general announcements that affect all candidates.
