Admissions Test Format

We operate a joint registration and admissions process with Crossley Heath School. Parents need to complete an on-line registration form for the admission tests, please click here for more information about registering for the tests.

Students wishing to join the school in Year 7 are required to sit the joint NHGS/CHS admissions tests in September during Year 6 at primary school.  The tests comprise four elements across two tests:

  • English and Verbal Reasoning
  • Maths and Non Verbal Reasoning

The tests will be answered on optical mark reader sheets.

Updated familiarisation resources are available from G L Assessment (see link) who are the providers of the tests.

The test length on the familiarisation materials is not indicative of the length of the actual tests. They are intended for familiarisation only.

Once the tests have been marked, parents will be informed in writing by the schools of their child's position in the order of merit and whether they have reached the required standard to be considered for admission.
