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 2020.


Registration for the tests will open on 1st May 2019 and close on 6th September 2019 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 9th November, 23rd November and 30th November 2019. There will also be an optional practice test on 19th October 2019. Places at this centre will be allocated by AQE on a first come first served basis.

I look forward to the opportunity of seeing you at that meeting so if it is your intention to attend please return the reply slip below to the School Office on or before that evening.
