Year 7 Admissions

Thank you for considering Queen Elizabeth Grammar School for the next stage in your child’s education.

Pupils will be selected for a place at Queen Elizabeth Grammar School on the basis of their aptitude for the academic nature of the education offered at the school, such selection being by way of evidence of aptitude from the entrance test. All who are considering applying for a place at Queen Elizabeth Grammar School should register for the entrance test application online. Please note that this does not replace the Local Authority online preference form (SA3) which must also be completed, otherwise a valid application will not have been made.

Please Note that the Local Authority SA3 form is not ‘Live’ until early September 2024. Please do not apply before this time as your application will not be accepted by Westmorland & Furness School Admissions.

Please refer to the Admissions Policy for further information.
