All applicants for a place in Year 7 at King Edward VI Camp Hill School For Boys in September 2015 need to register for the Consortium of Grammar Schools in Birmingham entrance test. Registration starts from late May and the deadline is Friday 11th July 2014 at 4pm.
The entrance test itself will be held on Saturday 6th September 2014.
Admission Policy (September 2015 entry)
Register for the Entrance Test
- Online at http://www.birminghamgrammarschools.org
- By registration form obtained from the school
- By post from the Consortium Office
For postal entries, the address is:
Grammar Schools' Consortium
PO BOX 15627
A home Local Authority preference form will also need to be completed. The LA will consider your application to each of the schools you have named on your home LA preference form. You can name up to six schools.
Results will be sent out by the Local Authorities in early March 2014 (if your LA allows applications online then results may arrive sooner by email than those posted).
Information on how places are allocated is given in your home LA booklet. Please read the booklet very carefully.
All LAs have an equal preference system so, if your child meets the criteria for two or more schools, the LA will offer you a place at the school you have ranked highest on the LA form. Therefore, if you put a grammar school first on your LA Form, but your child is not successful in the entrance test, you will not put at risk your chance of being offered a place at any other school you have listed. Your child's application for other schools will be treated in the same way as every other application. For example, it will depend on the distance between your home and the school for most comprehensive schools. Remember, if grammar schools are you first choice, put them first on the LA preference form.
