Can any kind soul tell me if a child has to reach a certain academic standard before being allowed to sit the entrance exam for Parkstone - for example, three level 5 SATs or two 5's and a 4, or a certain CAT score, or be on the gifted register - or is the test open to anyone?

Having just looked at their website, I am fairly certain that they would mention if the test was NOT open to everyone. However, I do not have any insider information about this school Scarymary (great name btw!)

Test is open to all. Just a case of filling in application to Poole BC by closing date and then PGS will invite your daughter to the test day. All in all a very relaxed and friendly process. Historically it has been said that PGS asked for girls to get three level 5s in SATs before sitting the test but I know of girls who have got 2 fives and a four and still passed the test. So all in all no there is no pre requirement for sitting the test.
Best of luck to your DD.

Thanks for the info Paula and Ed's mum - it's just that you hear so many rumours etc it's hard to know what to believe!

And scarymary is just what I look like on a bad hair day (ie every day!!)
