About the test

GL Assessment (the provider of assessments) will provide the late transfer test for September 2024 entry.

The paper-based test is designed to assess a child’s suitability for grammar school. It tests whether your child can think through and work out verbal, non-verbal and mathematical problems. This gives your child the chance to show their skills in different ways - using words, numbers and pictures or diagrams.

There is one late transfer test paper which is multiple-choice and lasts approximately one hour.

An invigilator will give the instructions for the test.
