Pupil Premium is now part of the over subscription criteria as it was last year, just double-checked. Will be interesting to see if Kendrick catch-up.
The permanent home address of the student is within the designated area of the school and the student is from a family in receipt
of Income Support and/or entitled to claim free school meals at their current school at the time of the test or is in receipt of the
Service Premium. Documentary evidence that the parent is in receipt of the appropriate support payment entitling the child to free
school meals/service premium will be required.
For in-year admissions
some changes in exam format!
The entrance tests will be taken at Reading School. The Entrance Test will be in two parts:
Part One: Verbal, Numerical and Non-Verbal.
Part Two: English Comprehension extension question.
The Verbal, Numerical and Non-Verbal questions are set by a nationally recognised assessment body. The English extension
question will test literacy. The results of the Part One Verbal, Numerical and Non-Verbal questions will be combined,
standardised, and placed in rank order. On the basis of this rank order, the top candidates, in order of rank, will then have their
comprehension questions assessed. The results of the Verbal, Numerical and Non-Verbal tests, and the English extension
questions will be combined. The combined rankings will be used to determine the rank order of candidates.
