In-year Admission Years 7 – 11

Most pupils join Upton Court Grammar School at the start of year 7 having successfully achieved the eligibility score in the 11+ entrance examination. We are aware however, that there may be reasons why you wish us to consider admission for your child beyond this point. For example, you may have moved to the area, or you would like your son or daughter to benefit from a high-quality education that we offer.

Upton Court Grammar School is over-subscribed, which means that we do not usually have places available. However, places do occasionally become available which means we will consider new applicants for admission.

As a selective school, before a place can be offered your son or daughter must sit and pass an entrance examination based on English Language, Mathematics and Science. We may also request a school report and reference from the most recent school your child has attended.  

The school will maintain a list of prospective applicants and when a place becomes available, will invite those in the appropriate age group to be tested.  If you wish your child to be added to the Prospective List please complete the form below. Once we receive the form an acknowledgement will be sent to you; we will then contact you if a place becomes available. We suggest that you do look for alternative schools at this stage, as places may not be available for a long period of time.

Terms and Conditions

  1. If your child left a previous school as a result of permanent exclusion, you must declare this on the initial enquiry form above.
  2. Upton Court Grammar School is a state funded institution, and does not offer privately funded services to any student. The student must therefore be entitled to receive free education in the United Kingdom. If s/he does not hold European Union citizenship, eligibility for free education must be established before an offer of a place can be made. We reserve the right to verify the validity of immigration visas and proof of eligibility from the UK Home Office.
