Admissions for the start of Year 7
Applications for places to start in Year 7 must be made through your Local Education Authority using the Secondary Common Application Form (SCAF). Your daughter’s primary school will have copies of your LEA Admission to Secondary School booklet which provides information on the admission process for transfer from Year 6 to Year 7. Applications can be made on line through your LEA website or using the SCAF.
Admissions to Year 7 for Wilmington Grammar School for Girls are co-ordinated by Kent County Council (KCC). Information regarding admission to Kent schools is found here.
Entry to Wilmington Grammar School for Girls is via the Kent Procedure for Entrance to Secondary Schools Age 11 Assessment Tests (PESE).
Parents must register for their daughter to take the PESE test with KCC. Registration is usually open during June each year. Please check the KCC website to confirm the exact closing date. Late registrations are not accepted unless you are moving into the area.
Only those students who are assessed as suitable for a grammar school education will be offered a place. Places are offered in accordance with the Admissions Policy as published by the Governing Body.

In Year Admissions
Unfortunately we are over-subscribed in Years 7-9 at our school and therefore cannot offer a place to anyone who applies directly to us. You may contact the Admissions Officer to discuss this further. Admission part way through the preparation for GCSE examinations (i.e. Years 10 and 11) is not advisable, therefore the school would only admit a student after the start of Year 9 in exceptional circumstances where a place is available.
Admissions to Year 12
Wilmington Grammar School for Girls offers a collaborative Sixth Form – WG6 - in partnership with Wilmington Grammar School for Boys.
WG6 admits boys and girls to follow AS/A Level courses if they achieve the required GCSE grades for the courses chosen.
