Late Preference Changes
Selection tests for grammar school places, and assessment tests at schools that admit 10% of their intake in a specialist subject such as music or sport, may taking place later in the first term of the academic year because of the COVID-19 outbreak and results will not be available until after 31 October 2021.
Parents who have applied for a grammar school place as well as those who have applied for a specialism place, for example music at Prendergast or Haberdashers’ Aske’s Hatcham College or sport at Haberdashers’ Aske’s Knights Academy, have been allowed to change 'on time preferences' up until 10 December 2021. Changes cannot be made after this date. Applicants wishing to change their preference will need to provide documentary proof that their child took the relevant selection test or assessment and has received a result.
