Year 6 test

Marking and results

All the test papers will be scored by GL Assessment. Using an independent organisation to do all the scoring makes sure that the tests are marked fairly and consistently.

Your child's age will be taken into account in the final test scores.

GL Assessment will send your child's test scores to the secondary schools for which you have applied. They will also send a copy to Wandsworth Council who will pass on the details to your child's primary school.

The test scores are strictly confidential and will stay for school use only. Schools you have not applied to will only see your child's scores if you apply for a place at a later date.


You will be notified of your child's test results in the week commencing 15 October 2018. The notification will provide information about:

  • how the test scores are used by the schools
  • previous years' admissions selective places, and
  • ability bands at Wandsworth schools.

This will help you to assess whether your child may be eligible for a selective (ability) place at Burntwood School, Ernest Bevin College or Graveney School before making an application. It will also be a guide as to which ability band your child may be placed in if you apply for Ashcroft Technology Academy or Chestnut Grove Academy.

Each school has its own admission criteria. Schools may use the test scores in different ways when allocating places or may not use them at all.

Further information

A score that results in an offer of a place at one school will not necessary result in an offer at another.
