Admissions Policy 2023-24 

Supplementary Information Form 2023-24


At present our school is full and oversubscribed and has waiting lists for entry to Year 7 through to Year 11. 

If you live in Kent or are about to move into Kent and want a place for your child at our school, you must complete an In Year Admissions Form (IYAF) and return this to the Admissions Officer at the School.You can download the IYAF via the link below or a paper copy can be obtained from the school office. Parents or guardians should complete the application form and must fill in a separate form for each school to which you apply and also for each child of school age who needs a place.

If you have a new address, please attach evidence that you and the child reside at this address. If you have not yet moved, we will process the application when we receive evidence to show that the move is taking place; e.g. an exchange of contracts or a rental agreement on a property in Kent.

We are a grammar school and as such any student applying for a place here must have been assessed as suitable for a grammar school place through Kent County Council’s 11+ assessment procedure (Kent Test) or where the applicant has not taken the Kent Test, the school will arrange for an internal assessment to take place. We use CATs Tests to assess in year applicants and the requirements for entry mean students must achieve an average of 114 in the CATs Tests, with no individual score below 108. Being assessed as suitable for a place at this school does not in itself guarantee a place and in the event of the year group being over-subscribed, a waiting list will be held and ranked according to the over-subscription criteria.

If you require further information from the school please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Rogers (Admissions Officer) by telephone or alternatively by e-mail Please provide the applicant’s details, including name, year group, date of birth and address.

In Year Application Form

Parents have a statutory right of appeal, should an application be refused. Please write to The Clerk to the Appeal Panel, Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School, Abbey Place, Faversham, Kent ME13 7BQ. Appeals should take the form of a letter briefly setting out the grounds for the appeal. The Clerk will acknowledge receipt and will initiate arrangements for the hearing of the appeal by an Independent Appeal Panel. Parents have the right to be present at the hearing.


Requests for admission to Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School outside of the normal age group should be made in writing to the Headteacher, as early as possible in the admissions round associated with the student’s date of birth. This will allow the school sufficient time to make a decision before the closing date.

Parents are not expected to provide evidence to support their request to defer their application, however where provided it must be specific to the child in question. This might include medical or Educational Psychologist reports. There is no legal requirement for this medical or educational evidence to be secured from an appropriate professional, however, failure to provide this may impede the school’s ability to agree to deferral.

Parents are required to complete an application for the normal point of entry at the same time, in case their request is declined. This application should be withdrawn if the school agrees to accept a deferred application for entry into year 7 the following year. Deferred applications must be made via paper CAF to the Local Authority, with written confirmation from the named school attached. Deferred applications will be processed in the same way as all applications for the cohort in the following admissions round, and offers will be made in accordance with each school’s oversubscription criteria.

Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School will ensure that parents receive a response to their request in writing before national offer day
