Dear Parent/Carer

 

RE: Common Entrance Assessments by the Association for Quality Education

 

As you are probably aware the Board of Governors of Ballyclare High School plans to use the AQE Common Entrance Assessment next year again as part of the admissions criteria for entry to Ballyclare High School for the School year beginning September 2018. Registration for the tests will begin on 2nd May 2017 until 8th September 2017 and forms will be available from the AQE website and from Ballyclare High School from 2nd May. We will accommodate 300 pupils to sit the tests at Ballyclare High School on NOVEMBER 11th, NOVEMBER 25th AND DECEMBER 2nd  2017. There will also be an optional practice test on 21st October 2017. Places at this centre will be allocated by AQE on a first come first served basis, so early application is recommended.

 

It is also planned to hold an information evening for P6 parents/carers on Tuesday 30th May 2017 from 7.00 – 7.45pm. There will be a short power-point presentation and senior staff will be on hand to answer any specific questions you may have. I look forward to the opportunity of seeing you at that meeting. If it is your intention to attend please return the reply slip below to the School office on or before Tuesday 30th May 2017.
