As you may have seen in the press KCC have decided to delay the Kent Test to the end of October to enable the children to settle back into the school routine before sitting this examination.
Please see the guidance on https://kccmediahub.net/proposal-to-delay-kent-test-2020-until-october74
Please also regularly visit this page for up to date information concerning the Kent Test
Kent Test registration is open from 1 June until 1 July. Please visit www.kent.gov.uk/ola to register your child.
Parents will be informed closer to the time if any adjustments need to be made to the Kent Test as a result of the recent school closures for the majority of children.
The test is only valid for Kent grammar schools.
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. You can search for Kent grammar schools with our Kent Schools search.
If your child has a disability or special educational need that may affect the way they access the test, you need to discuss this with your current school's Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) as soon as possible. Any proposal for alternative access requirements must made by the school by 10 July 2019.
When you register your child for the Kent Test online, you will need to confirm if you have discussed a request for access arrangements with your child’s school.
