SEAG Transfer Test


RE: Common Entrance Assessments by the Schools’ Entrance Assessment Group


The Board of Governors of Ballyclare High School plans to use the Schools’ Entrance Assessment Group tests next year as part of the admissions criteria for entry to Ballyclare High School for the academic year beginning September 2024.


Registration for the tests opened on 3rd May 2023 and closes on 22nd September 2023. Application forms can be completed online via SEAG website (


There are two stages to this process:

Stage 1: You (as a parent/carer of your child) register yourself on the website.

Stage 2: Having completed a Parent/Carer Registration for yourself you will then be able to make a Pupil Application, on the website, to register your child to sit the Entrance Assessment.

We will accommodate 300 pupils to sit the tests at Ballyclare High School on


11th November 2023

25th November 2023


Places at this centre will be allocated on a first come first served basis as part of the online registration process.


Our familiarisation event will take place on the 21st October, 2023. This is designed primarily to allow P7 pupils to meet our friendly school staff and senior pupils prior to the examinations. It also lets them see where they will sit the test, affords them a full practice test and allows them to ask any questions they might have. We have received very positive feedback on our approaches from both parents and feeder Primary Schools in the past.

Warmest wishes to you and your child from all in the Ballyclare High family.


Yours sincerely



Dr M Rainey
