Year 7 Admissions for entry in September 2019

There are 150 places for boys available at Queen Mary's Grammar School for entry to year 7 in September 2019. 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 & Wolverhampton. The Entrance Test was held in September 2018. Parents also had to list this School as one of their preferences when completing their Local Authority application forms.

The School informed parents of their son’s Test result in October 2018. The actual allocation of places is managed by the candidate’s home Local Authority, in a coordinated admissions scheme with other Local Authorities. Local Authorities will inform parents which school their son has been allocated a place at on 1st March 2019. Parents should not contact the school to find out if their son has been offered a place, as places are allocated by their home Local Authority. All enquiries should be directed to your home Local Authority.

For boys who sat the Test and were allocated a place at another school by their Local Authority, their names will automatically go on the school’s waiting list if Queen Mary's Grammar School was listed as a higher preference on the Local Authority application. The waiting list is maintained by Walsall Council’s School Admissions team. If initial offers to the School are declined, places will become available to boys on the waiting list in accordance with our Admissions Arrangements (see below).

The waiting list will not be available until the end of March 2019. The list is maintained by Walsall Council so please do not call the School for information regarding the waiting list. The waiting list will be maintained until 31st December 2019 in accordance with our Admissions Arrangements.

If Parents have not already applied to the School and wish to be considered for a place at the School they can still apply for their son to sit the Test. Applications must be made online using the link below:
