Gloucestershire Grammar Schools
Late Entrance Test for admission into Year 7 in September 2021
Essential Information before you start to register
Please ensure you read the information on the school websites before you start.
There are further guidance notes to help you at the start of each section. Please read these carefully before you complete the section.
Some fields are required - these are clearly indicated on the form. If you leave any of these required fields blank the registration form cannot be submitted.
You will encounter difficulties if you attempt to register on a SmartPhone. Please use a PC or Tablet where you can easily read the prompts and the instructions. The majority of errors and mistakes are caused when attempting to complete the Registration Form on a SmartPhone.
We will be sending you emails as part of the registration process. It is essential that you receive ALL our emails. Some ISPs (email providers) block any emails received from any email address that is not in your Safe Senders. This is a world wide problem and outside of our control.
To avoid this happening to you, before you start to complete the on-line registration form, you must add the following email address to your “Safe Senders”. This should ensure that all our emails are delivered to your Inbox.
As the registration window is extremely short if you fail to add our email address to your “Safe Senders” before you complete the on-line form and you do not receive our confirmation email your child may be unable to sit the late test. Please follow the instructions above and add our email address to your “Safe Senders”. It is your responsibility to follow ALL the instructions. See below regarding “Proof of Submission”.
How will I know if my Registration Form has been submitted successfully?
When you have completed your Registration Form and you click the Submit button, if your form has been successfully submitted, you will be taken to a “Proof of Submission” page.
This will display your child’s name, a unique Proof of Submission number and the date and time that the form was submitted. You MUST print or photograph this page. In the event of any dispute regarding the submission of your on-line registration form you will need to send us this page as evidence. Without it we will not investigate any claims that an on-line form has been submitted on time.
If you have left any of the required fields blank, instead of the “Proof of Submission” page, your registration form will be re-displayed and any errors will be highlighted in RED at the top of the form. You need to complete these required fields and then click the “Submit Registration” button again. You should then be taken to the “Proof of Submission” page. If you do not have a “Proof of Submission” it means that your on-line form has not been submitted and you will need to submit a new on-line registration form.
If you find that you cannot submit your form, please read the notes at the very bottom of this page and send us the details. We will do our best to help you. See “Unable to Submit on-line registration form” in the Additional Links section at the bottom of this page. However, responsibility remains with you to ensure that your completed registration form is received before the deadline - 12 noon on 15 January 2021. No exceptions or extensions to the deadline will be considered.
Important Notice about Confirmation emails
Registration Forms are processed within twenty-four hours and a confirmation email is sent as soon as it has been processed.
If you think you have not received your confirmation email please check your spam, bulk and junk folders - it may be there!
If you have a copy of your “Proof of Submission” page (see above) and checked your spam, bulk and junk folders and have not received a confirmation email by 12 noon on 15 January 2021 send us an email with a copy of your “Proof of Submission”.
Responsibility for ensuring that your registration form has been received and processed before the deadline (12 noon on 15 January 2021) rests exclusively with parents / carers.
Do NOT submit a duplicate Registration Form. Duplicate Registration Forms will be deleted automatically without being processed.

Test Day ID and COVID19 declaration
After you have submitted the on-line registration form you need to download and complete the Test Day ID Form (click the link above). Your child must bring it to the test signed and with a photograph attached (see section 4 in Notes about Admission Arrangements and Testing). This applies to ALL candidates.
When you receive your confirmation email from us, if you included anything in the Special Needs box on the On-Line Registration Form, you will be directed to download and complete the SEN-D Form (click the link above). This must be submitted to your The Crypt School together with any supporting evidence by 12 noon on 15 January 2021.
