Year 5 Grammar School Applications

Dear Parents and Carers,

As some of you may be aware, the application window for children in Year 5 to apply for Grammar School entrance in September 2020 is now open. This year the entrance criteria for grammar schools haschanged and there are more opportunities for children who live in the local area to gain entrance. 

If you would like to find out more, there will be a session held at Heathfield Primary School, with Ms Daniels, an Assistant Head at King Edwards VI Handsworth on Friday May 24th at 9:15am to talk to you about the process. She will be able to talk about the process for both boys and girls. We will also have some students from King Edwards who will be able to support you with the application during the session.  

If you would like to complete the online form during the session, then please ensure you have (on your phone or other device) a recent photo of your child's face. It must have been taken within the last month. This picture needs to be in JPG, PNG or GIF format and less than 2MB in size. PDFs will not upload.

As this session will be open to parents from both Heathfield and Birchfield, we ask you to complete the slip below if you would like to attend so we have an idea of numbers.  

Yours sincerely, 

Mrs Z Thewlis

Head of School
