The school will admit 180 boys into Year 7 each September. We use the Kent Age 11 Procedure for Entrance to Secondary Education (PESE) tests. Parents and guardians must apply for their sons to take these tests during the summer of Year 5. Applications to take the tests can be made in June and are made through Kent County Council at


The tests aim to identify children in the top 25% of the ability range. Boys who are successful in the tests will be assessed as suitable for a grammar school. Boys need to gain this 'grammar' assessment to be admitted to this school.

Applicants should be aged 11 when they start at the school. Parents or guardians of potential under-age applicants should write to Mr Oakes at the school prior to application. These applications may be accepted at the discretion of the school.

All applicants complete their Local Authority [LA] Secondary Common Application Form [SCAF] which is returned to their LA. On the SCAF all schools applied to are listed in order of preference. This order is used by the LA when allocating applicants to schools.

Further details of the procedure are available in the Admissions Policy.
