Prospective Year 7 Students

Application Procedure

Applications for admission in Year 7 must be made direct to the Local Authority by the closing date published in the Secondary Education in Essex booklet. For further details visit:


Music Aptitude 


10% of our Year 7 intake is now selected by music aptitude and selection takes place through an in-person Music Aptitude test.


Our Music Aptitude Test takes place after the September Open Evening and results are posted before the deadline day for handing in forms to Essex County Council Admissions in October.


The test is designed to be purely on aptitude and not musical ability with multiple choice questions, for example, on rhythm recognition and pitch recognition. Students will not be disadvantaged for not currently being able to play a musical instrument.


We will accept 27 students based on the Music Aptitude test. There is a pass mark for the test and students will be ranked according to their result. A waiting list will be kept if more than 27 pass the test.

Admission Appeals

If your child is not offered a place at our school, you can appeal against the decision. You need to make an appeal within 20 days of receiving the decision letter or email.
