Secondary Transfer to Year 7 in September 2018
If your child is currently in Year 5 and you think you may apply for a place at Parmiter's School under the Academic and/or Music criterion, you will need to register for the entrance tests. Registration for the entrance tests will open in May 2017 via the SW Herts Consortium website: : www.swhertsschools.org.uk.
The Academic test will be held on Saturday 9 September 2017.
The Music aptitude test will be held on Tuesday 12 September 2017.
Parents must ensure their child's availability on these dates.
One further date for the academic and music test will be arranged, if required, for children that registered on time who miss the main testing days because they were medically unfit (a medical certificate will be required) or for specific religious observance only. Please note that we are unable to accommodate children whose holiday commitments clash with our tests or for any other reasons than those stated above.
Registration for the entrance tests is not an application for a school place. The application process for Secondary Transfer 2018 will open in September 2017 and the Secondary Transfer deadline is 31 October 2017. Further details, including our open events and the school application form, will be made available in due course.
Please note that we are not able to arrange tours of the school outside the school secondary transfer events.

Entrance Test Scores
The Entrance Test scores will be available on the parent portal before the secondary transfer deadline. Parents will be able to log in with their email and secure password (as used at registration). Please note that there is no pass mark for the academic test and it is not possible to advise parents on whether a test score will achieve a place at Parmiter's School. The cut-off score for entry in September 2018 will not be known until National Allocation Day on 1 March 2018. Click here to view the cut-off information for previous years.
