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 only 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.

Results

Your child’s test results will be provided to you in the week commencing 18 October 2021, before the closing date for applications on 31 October 2021. Parents of children attending a Wandsworth state-funded primary school will be notified of their child’s test score by the primary school.

Parents of children not attending a Wandsworth state-funded primary school will be notified of their child’s scores in an email from Wandsworth Pupil Services.

The notification will provide information about:

  • How the test scores are used by the schools
  • Previous years' admissions to selective places
  • Ability bands at Wandsworth schools.

Each school has its own admission criteria. Schools use the test scores in different ways when allocating places, and some do not use them at all.

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