It appears they are considering changes to the admissions policy and a consultation will run from 1st Jan to 28th Feb 2015 . Changes include the testing arrangements - where Verbal Reasoning has been replaced with English.
The Governors of The Halifax Grammar Schools (The North Halifax Grammar School and The Crossley Heath School) are currently consulting on the Admission arrangements for entry into the schools from September 2016.
The admissions tests will consist of:
a)a nationally validated test in English, supplied by a recognised body such as G L Assessment;
b) a test in Mathematics and
c)a test in continuous writing in English

Response to the consultation http://www.nhgs.co.uk/pdfs/consultation ... chools.pdf
As a result of the consultation process, the Governors of the two Halifax Grammar Schools have decided to delay making changes to their admissions policies by one year, while further consideration is given to a number of the points raised in the consultation period. The policies to be determined and published by the schools by April 15th for entrance to the schools in September 2016 will therefore be the same as the currently determined policies
