Medway Test results released


Medway Matters

More than 1,000 children are eligible to go to a Medway grammar school after having taken the Medway Test.

In total, 1,126 children were assessed as eligible for a grammar school place, with 712 of those being Medway residents.

This year 2,569 children registered to take the Medway Test, with 2,429 actually sitting it.

And of those who sat the test, 1,761 were Medway residents and 668 were from out of the area.

This year the minimum score required to be assessed as suitable for admission to a Medway grammar school is 521 – last year it was 525.

The number of Medway resident children achieving the minimum score or above this year is 712, and this represents 23 per cent of the total Medway cohort for this year group which is 3,066.

In addition, 414 children who live outside of Medway also achieved the minimum score or above.

Up to an additional two per cent of the Medway cohort for this year group (roughly 61 pupils) may also be deemed as eligible for Medway grammar schools following the parental review process.

This involves the child’s work being reviewed by a panel and this will take place on 14 October 2015 for those parents who request it.

Cllr Mike O’Brien, Portfolio Holder for Children’s Services, said: “Well done to all children who took the Medway Test this year.

“Moving up to secondary school from primary is a huge step and I wish them all the very best for the future and encourage them to work hard to achieve their dreams.”
