Is there a late entry to Birmingham Grammar schools such as 13+ or in year admission from comprehensive school?

There is no specific 13+ entry but each school will fill places in year as they arise

You will need to contact the school/s and be added to the waiting list. If a place becomes available your child will bw invited to sit an entrance test.

A new boy has started in year 9 at my son's school and the head boy who showed us around a couple of years ago joined in year 9 too. Places do arise occasionally, though not always.

I believe KES does a 13 plus but I don't know any details.

This is from one of the school's policies:

Quote:
Year 7 (first term)
If a vacancy arises during the first term of Year 7, the waiting list in existence
from 1 March of that year will be used and the place offered in accordance
with the admissions criteria above. This is a list of those who sat the entrance
test in September 2019 and who did not receive an offer from this school or a
more preferred school.
Mid Year 7 - 11
At any point from January after the pupil starts Year 7, parents may apply for
a place at the school. In-year vacancies normally only become available if a
current pupil is leaving the school. Any applicant who cannot be offered a
place will be added to the school’s waiting list and parents will be informed of
their right of appeal. If a vacancy arises, candidates on the waiting list will be
invited to take a test and the place will be awarded to the highest scoring
candidate above a minimum standard.

A boy left DS1’s class a week ago to go to another GS. He had to sit a test (there were 3 of them) and he got the place. This was at the start of Y10. You need to stay in contact with the school you are looking to go to.
