Senior School students at Wolverhampton Grammar School

Have you registered for the year 7 entrance test?

It’s not too late to register your child for our Entrance Test in January.

Children are welcome to join us for an entrance test throughout the year (at a time and date to suit you). However, to ensure we can guarantee your child a place in our Senior School for September 2018 or to consider your application for a Scholarship or financial assistance (Bursary) we would recommend that you contact us as soon as possible and before Friday 15th December to register your child to sit our main entrance test date on Saturday 13th January 2018.

Our process of selection and admissions for our Senior School is designed to confirm that applicants have the potential to cope with a curricular that is designed to stretch academic potential. The whole process aims to put children at their ease and to assess both what they can do and what they might do given the academic and extra-curricular opportunities that Wolverhampton Grammar School can offer them.

The school strives to set and maintain a constant academic standard of entry (via an entrance test). There is no quota system, nor any minimum or maximum number of places to be offered, though late applicants may not be able to be considered if the available places are already full. We always ask your current school for a most recent school report.

Entry at Year 7 and above is via the entrance test. The entrance test includes short papers in:

  • English,
  • Mathematics and
  • Verbal Reasoning.

Students who are successful in the entrance test will be offered a place. If your child has been awarded a Scholarship or bursary support you will be notified at the same time.

In order to register your child for an entrance test please contact Jane Morris, Admissions Registrar by email: or tel: 01902 421326.
