Announcement: Entry for September 2015

At the beginning of December 2013, the seven Gloucestershire Grammar Schools made a joint decision to start using Durham University (CEM) for the admissions test. CEM are one of the largest independent providers of educational assessment and monitoring systems in the world. They have been developing selection assessments since 1999, and provide tests for a number of grammar schools in other counties.

The schools are concerned by the amount of tutoring that currently takes place and CEM design their tests to enable all children to demonstrate their academic potential without excessive preparation. CEM do not produce commercially available practice materials and they advise that the best preparation for their tests is to read books and use mathematics on a regular basis.  However, familiarisation material will be made available via the Gloucestershire Grammar Schools’ websites in January 2014 to enable parents to give guidance on the style of questions.
