Secondary Transfer 2019

Secondary Transfer September 2020 (current Year 5 children) and Online Test Registration

The Test Registration Form (TRF) will be available here from 9am on Wednesday 15th May until 6pm on Wednesday 19th June 2019.

If you are interested in applying under our musical aptitude or academic criteria your child will need to sit assessment tests.

Before registering you should:-

  • Read our Admissions Arrangements for Secondary Transfer 2020. This will give you the opportunity to familiarise yourself with our admissions rules.
  • Ensure your Child’s permanent address is within one of our Local Priority Areas. Children from outside of these areas are not eligible to be considered under these criteria and therefore cannot take our tests.
  • Ensure your child is available for the dates of the tests as detailed on our Key Dates page.
  • Complete the online Test Registration Form. Please note we are unable to accept test registration requests after the published date of 19th June 2019.
