Applying for the Kent Test

Grammar schools in Kent provide for children in about the top 25% of the ability range. These school require your child to have sat the Kent Test.  You may want to discuss your child’s academic achievement with us before you decide whether to register them for the Kent Test.  Passing the Kent Test does not guarantee your child a place in a Kent grammar school.

Make sure you know where the Kent grammar schools are and what the admissions criteria are for the school(s) you are interested in.
