Year 7: Admissions September 2019

If you have a child who will be 11 by 31 August 2019 you should register with your Local Authority and list Sandwell Academy as a preference. Online applications will open during the summer of 2018, you should make your application with your Local Authority and check with their Admissions Service for further details and deadlines.

All children who list Sandwell Academy as a preference with their Local Authority will be invited to sit a Non Verbal Reasoning Test. This is not a pass or fail test. There is not a separate registration form for the NVR test. Children must sit this test to be considered for a place at Sandwell Academy, testing will take place 24 and 25 November 2018.

If you have not received an invitation to a testing session by Wednesday 21 November 2018 you must contact the Academy, due to the large number of applications the Academy is unable to check that each individual applicant has received their invitation to a testing session.
