Year 7 Admissions School Year 2019-2020

School Year 2019-2020

Admission is based on the results of the School’s Entrance Test.  We administer the Test as part of a Consortium of grammar schools in Shropshire, Walsall and Wolverhampton.  The Test will be held on Monday 17th September 2018.

Please note:  The consortium of grammar schools in Shropshire, Walsall and Wolverhampton has agreed that the Entrance Test for 2019-2020, will NOT be re-arranged for candidates who are engaged in pre-planned activities, such as school trips, on the test date.


To be considered for a place at this School, parents/their daughters must complete the following:

  1. Parents must apply to the School/Consortium to take the Entrance Test
  2. Girls must sit the Entrance Test
  3. Parents must complete a separate application to their home Local Authority listing Queen Mary’s High School as a preference

1.  Application to the School/Consortium to take the Entrance Test

Applications must be made via the Consortium’s online applications portal.  This will be made available in April 2018.

2.  Taking the Entrance Test

The Entrance Test will take place on Monday 17th September 2018.

The Test comprises two papers of about an hour each, which assess verbal reasoning/English, non-verbal reasoning and mathematics.  Admission to the School is based on performance in the Test.  A number of places will be allocated to Looked After/Pupil Premium children, whose scores exceed a minimum qualifying score.  Further details can be found in our Admissions Arrangements (see below).

Applications to the Local Authority need to be completed in accordance with your home Local Authority’s application process.  This may be online or by completing their Preference/Common Application Form.  We expect the deadline for parent applications to their home Local Authority to be on or around 31st October 2018.  Places are allocated by parents’ home Local Authority, on or around 1st March 2019.  Parents must check their own Local Authority’s deadlines.
