Year 7 Admissions 2020

All parents/carers are invited to express four preferences on a Secondary Common Application Form (SCAF), which is returnable to their Local Authority (LA) by 31st October 2019. Parents can express their preferences in priority order – that is 1, 2, 3 and 4. Having expressed your preferences on the SCAF, you are not in a position to change your mind at a later date. The preference order is not shared with schools.

The supplementary form needs to be completed ONLY if your son is eligible for Pupil Premium. This form can be found on page 16 of the Determined Secondary Admissions Arrangements 2020-21 below and needs returning directly to the TWGSB School Office by 31st October 2019, although the SCAF needs returning directly to the LA as stated above.


Apply on-line or by post

For admission to Tunbridge Wells Grammar School for Boys, applicants will need to have secured a ‘grammar’ assessment, as notified in a letter from the LA sent out to parents on the 17th October 2019. In addition, if you registered online, you will be sent an email after 16:00 on 17th October 2019. You also need  to have named Tunbridge Wells Grammar School for Boys on the Secondary Common Application Form (SCAF).

Parents will be notified of the result of the offer of a school place in a letter sent on 2nd March 2020 by the LA or, if you applied online and provided a valid email address, you will be notified by email after 16:00. The LA will therefore act as the clearing house for admissions to this School and all other secondary schools in Kent. Parents will need to reply to the offer by 16th March 2020.

The Planned Admission Number for this School in September 2020 is 210 boys.
