Dear Parent/Carer


RE: Common Entrance Assessments by the Association for Quality Education



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 academic year beginning September 2021.


Registration for the tests will open on 29th April 2020 and close on 25th September 2020 with forms available from the AQE website ( and Ballyclare High School from 30th April.


We will accommodate 300 pupils to sit the tests at Ballyclare High School on 21st November, 28th November and 12th December 2020. There will also be an optional practice test on 17th October 2020.  Places at this centre will be allocated by AQE on a first come first served basis.
