Reg­is­tra­tion open to take Kent Test

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

Reg­is­tra­tion for chil­dren to take Septem­ber’s Kent Test opened this week.

Par­ents can now reg­is­ter for their chil­dren to take the test which will al­low them to be con­sid­ered for a place in a Kent Gram­mar school.

The test will be held af­ter the sum­mer hol­i­days on Septem­ber 8 for chil­dren at a Kent pri­mary school and on Septem­ber 10 for pupils out­side the county.

Chil­dren must be res­i­dent in the UK and ex­pect to start sec­ondary school in Septem­ber 2017.

The dead­line for reg­is­tra­tions is Fri­day, July 1.

Roger Gough, Kent County Coun­cil cab­i­net member for ed­u­ca­tion said: “Any par­ent con­sid­er­ing a gram­mar school for their child needs to reg­is­ter for them to take the test.

“We are par­tic­u­larly keen to en­cour­age pupils el­i­gi­ble for free school meals to reg­is­ter and sit the test as more gram­mar schools move to in­clude pri­or­ity for th­ese learn­ers.”

To reg­is­ter on­line, log on to www.kent.gov.uk/ola. Al­ter­na­tively a pa­per copy of the test reg­is­tra­tion form can be down­loaded from the here, picked up from pri­mary schools, or sent to you by post on re­quest – call 03000 41 21 21 or email kent.ad­mis­sions@ kent.gov.uk
