All pupils are assessed before entry to the Junior School.
Pupils are admitted at all ages between 3+ and 10+ although the vast majority enter in the September following their third or fourth birthday (Kinders or Reception). Following a visit to the school an Application Form is offered. When the form is returned a date for assessment is set.
Assessment for those entering at 3+ and 4+ in September takes place during the previous January. Children spend a morning in a small group during which time our experienced staff will be able to gauge their level of skill development and readiness for school.
Parents wishing their children to be admitted to the Infant Department at times other than in September are invited to bring their child to school to spend part of a day with the class he or she would join. Class teachers then carry out an assessment to determine whether or not the child will be able to integrate into the year group.
Pupils older than six hoping to enter the school have a more formal written assessment in English and Mathematics.
Please send the completed form, along with the application fee of £75 [by cheque, made payable to Leicester Grammar School Trust] and a copy of the child's birth certificate, to;
The Headteacher, Leicester Grammar Junior School, London Road, Great Glen, Leicestershire, LE8 9FL.
Please complete one form per child.
