Application to the Grammar Stream

To apply for a place in the Grammar Stream, you will need to complete an application form if you find that your child fulfils the following criteria:

Achieving high scores in the Key Stage 2 SATs Tests and high scores in CATs tests (Tests implemented by TBOWA during transition)

Although we recognise the achievements of pupils on the above tests, it is also important that applicants for the Grammar Stream can demonstrate responsibility for their own academic development. Areas we will consider are:

An understanding of current academic strengths and weaknesses

An awareness of how to build upon current strengths

A proactive approach to overcoming academic barriers

An ability to identify problems and generate solutions

A range of skills and qualities that would benefit the academy community

Successful applicants may be invited to interview, where they will have the opportunity to elaborate on their interests and talents further.
