After careful consideration, both Kendrick School and Reading School have taken the decision to change their test provider for the next round of testing for entry in 2015.

This will affect children currently in Year 5 and below.

The admission tests for Year 7 entry will consist of two 50 minute papers, each of which assess verbal, numerical and non verbal ability.

Applicants are expected to show competence in skills appropriate to Key Stage 2 English and Mathematics, and to be able to apply these skills creatively.

These are tests for which no additional preparation is necessary, however, a familiarisation paper will be available on the schools’ websites in May 2014.

Most aspects of the admissions testing process will remain unchanged.

However, testing will take place on Saturday 13th September 2014, and parents will be required to register their child for the test during the summer term and no later than 20th June 2014.

Parents will continue to receive notification of the test outcome prior to the completion of the Common Application Form.

Both Kendrick School and Reading School operate a designated area as part of their respective oversubscription criteria.

The address which will be used for consideration to be living within the designated area must be the applicant’s permanent address at the time of registration. (ie by 20th June 2014).

For further information on each school’s designated area, please visit the respective website.

More detailed information about the arrangements for testing will be available in the Spring Term on both Schools’ websites and at the relevant open evenings.
