  • How do I apply for a place at Nonsuch?

    For a place at Nonsuch High School for Girls in Year 7 September 2015 you must register your child to take the Selective Eligibility Test by completing the registration form which can be accessed via this website (click here).  This online Supplementary Form can also be accessed via the websites of Greenshaw High School, Wilson’s School, Sutton Grammar School, Wallington High School for Girls and Wallington County Grammar School.

    The online registration form will be available to complete online from 1 May 2014. The closing date for the completion of the registration form is midnight on 4 September 2014. 

    You must complete your registration using the online form in advance of this closing date. 

    Should your daughter be successful in the Selective Eligibility Test, she will be invited to sit the Second Stage Entrance Examination at Nonsuch High School for Girls. If your daughter passes this test you must include Nonsuch High School for Girls on the Common Application Form (CAF) to be eligible for consideration for a place at Nonsuch High School for Girls. 

    The CAF is provided by your home Local Authority when your child is in Year 6 and you use it to apply to any school regardless of the Local Authority in which the School is located.   It can also be completed online via the following link:

    https://www.eadmissions.org.uk.

    The closing date for submission of the CAF is 31 October 2014.  If you wish to apply for a place at Nonsuch High School for Girls you must name the school on the CAF.

    In order to make a valid application to Nonsuch High School for Girls:

    • you must name Nonsuch High School for Girls on your home Local Authority’s Common Application Form; and
    • your daughter must sit the Nonsuch High School for Girls Second Stage Entrance Examination.
  • If I am also interested in a place at one or more of the other participating schools do I need to complete a separate form for them too?

    No.  You only need to complete the online registration form once.  This is the case no matter how many of the participating schools you are interested in.

  • What if I am only interested in a place at one or two of the participating schools?

    That’s fine. Just complete the online registration form to sit the Selective Eligibility Test (accessed via the website of any of the participating schools).  Your child must sit the Selective Eligibility Test in order to be considered by any of Nonsuch High School for Girls, Sutton Grammar School, Wallington County Grammar School, Wallington High School for Girls, Wilson's School or for one of the 60 ability places available at Greenshaw High School. 

  • How do I register twins or two children in the same school year?

    You need to complete a separate registration form for each child (for example twins or siblings in the same school year).  Once you have completed and submitted the form for one child you should commence a new registration for any other children.

  • Can my child sit the test if they are not in Year 6 at the time of the tests?

    The Selective Eligibility Test is for children who will be in Year 6 of primary school at the date of the test (17 September 2014) – expected date of birth range 1 September 2003 to 31 August 2004.  Children can only sit the Selective Eligibility Test once.   A younger child cannot sit the test in earlier years as a practice. The participating schools will conduct year on year comparisons of the names of registered children.

  • Why is there a question on the registration form about the Pupil Premium/Free School Meals?

    You will only have been asked to complete these questions in the registration form if you might be considering applying for a place at Nonsuch High School for Girls or Wallington County Grammar School.   This is due to Nonsuch High School for Girls and Wallington County Grammar School including this as a criterion in their oversubscription criteria which is applied after their Second Stage Entrance Examinations. You should consult the wesbsites/Admissions Policy of these specific schools for further information.  Whether or not your child is eligible for Pupil Premium/Free School Meals is not relevant to the outcome of the Selective Eligibility Test. 

  • Why am I being asked whether my son is eligible to receive free school meals?

    You will only be asked this question if you are considering applying for a place at Wallington County Grammar School and you are being asked the question because Wallington County Grammar School has this as a criterion in their oversubscription criteria which is applied after their second stage entrance examination.  You should visit the School’s website for information.  Whether or not your son is eligible to receive free school meals is not relevant to the outcome of the Selective Eligibility Test.

  • Why am I being asked whether my daughter has triggered Pupil Premium?

    You will only be asked this question if you are considering applying for a place at Nonsuch High School for Girls and you are being asked the question because Nonsuch High School for Girls has this as a criterion in their oversubscription criteria which is applied after their second stage entrance examination.   You should visit the School’s website for information.  Whether or not your daughter has triggered Pupil Premium is not relevant to the outcome of the Selective Eligibility Test.

  • How do I find out if my child is eligible to receive free school meals (FSM) at the time of completing the registration for the Selective Eligibility Test?

    You should speak to your child’s primary school who will be able to help answer this question.

  • How do I find out if my child has triggered Pupil Premium in the last six years?

    You should speak to your child’s primary school who will be able to help answer this question.

  • I am having trouble with the online registration form. What should I do?

  • When is the Selective Eligibility Test?

    The date of the Selective Eligibility Test will be Wednesday 17 September 2014.

    Each of the participating schools will run a test centre and candidates will be invited to sit the test at one of these. You will be notified by email of the test centre your child should attend, along with other details needed to sit the test about a week before the test date. 

  • What is in the Selective Eligibility Test?

    The test consists of two multiple choice style papers; a maths paper and an English paper. Each paper will be about 45 minutes long. The tests do not include verbal reasoning or non verbal reasoning. Candidates will need to record their answers on a separate multiple choice answer sheet.

  • Can I get specimen papers or sample questions for the Selective Eligibility Test?

    No. The content of the maths and English tests is based on the content of Key Stage 2.  

     

  • Are there any other opportunities to sit the Selective Eligibility Test?

    There are no alternative dates to sit the Selective Eligibility Test except in the case of illness on the day (a medical certificate dated 17 September 2014 will be required).

  • Where will I sit the Selective Eligibility Test?

    All six participating schools will be hosting the Selective Eligibility Test at their schools during the same time periods on the same day.  The intention is that girls will be allocated to sit the test at either Nonsuch High School for Girls, Wallington High School for Girls or Greenshaw High School.  Boys will be allocated to sit the test at one of Sutton Grammar School, Wallington County Grammar School, Wilson’s School or Greenshaw High School. In general candidates will be allocated their nearest venue by reference to their post code.  Boy/Girl twins or siblings will be allocated to sit the test at Greenshaw High School irrespective of your post code.

  • Can I request to sit the Selective Eligibility Test at a particular venue?

    No.  In view of the number of candidates, it is not possible to manage requests for a specific venue.  However as candidates will generally be allocated to venues by reference to the post code of their home address it is most likely that you will be allocated the most convenient venue for you.

  • I have been allocated a particular venue for my child to sit the Selective Eligibility Test but I am not interested in a place at that school?

    It doesn’t matter. The school your child attends to sit the Selective Eligibility Test has no relevance to your preferences for a school place.

  • Can we request a morning or afternoon slot for the Selective Eligibility Test?

    No, as it is likely that there will only be one examination session for the Selective Eligibility Test which will run concurrently at all the participating school venues. 

  • What if my child has a Statement of Special Educational Needs?

    If your child has a Statement of Special Educational Needs, there are separate processes to be followed and you should speak first with your Local Authority who administer the process. Your child will still need to sit and pass the Selective Eligibility Test (and any second stage tests) to be eligible for a place at Nonsuch High School for Girls, Sutton Grammar School, Wallington County Grammar School, Wallington High School for Girls, Wilson’s School or for one of the 60 ability places at Greenshaw High School.

  • What if my child has special needs or special medical requirements that I would like to be taken into account for the Selective Eligibility Test?

    The online registration form asks you to provide details of any special needs or medical requirements your child may have. It is particularly important that you should tell us if your child has any disability, such as impaired sight or hearing that may disadvantage him/her in the context of an examination. It is also important that you let us know if your child has been formally identified as dyslexic or dyspraxic or has any other medical condition that we ought to be aware of. Letting us know will not disadvantage your child in any way. 

    Decisions on the special arrangements if any to be given to each candidate will be taken by reference to the content of the JCQ guidelines on access arrangements for children.  To support this judgement we will require you to provide documentary evidence from an appropriately qualified professional. You are also invited to provide a letter from your child’s primary school confirming the arrangements if any that the school has in place for your child but this will not be considered sufficient evidence in itself.

  • What should my child bring with them to the Selective Eligibility Test?

    Your child will need:

    1. The information which will be sent to you in advance by email with details of venue and candidate number.
    2. Two pencils (HB or B), a soft rubber, a pencil sharpener and a ruler in a clear plastic pencil case or bag. 
    3. A fleece or jumper.
    4. If desired, water in a sports cap bottle (no fizzy drinks) and a snack for break time (no nuts due to the number of children who suffer from nut allergies).
    5. If desired, a reading book to help pass waiting time.  This is optional and has absolutely nothing to do with the examination.

     

    Your child must not bring:

    1. A mobile telephone or any other electronic device.
    2. A calculator or calculator watch.
    3. Any piece of stationery which displays times tables or other such information.
    4. A dictionary.
  • Can my child bring their medication (e.g. EpiPen, inhaler) with them to the Selective Eligibility Test?

    Your child may bring their usual medication with them to the test venue.  It is important to provide details of their medical requirements on the online registration form so that we can make sure that the members of staff supervising their test venue are aware.

  • What is the pass mark for the Selective Eligibility Test?

    It is not possible to state a pass mark in advance of the test.  The pass mark will be decided by the participating schools after the test has been marked.

  • Does my child have to pass each paper in the Selective Eligibility Test?

    It is the total score that determines whether your child has passed the test: so for example, a very good performance in English can compensate for one that is a little weaker in maths. 

  • Does my son/daughter’s score in the Selective Eligibility Test count towards his/her score in the second stage Entrance Examinations at Nonsuch High School for Girls, Sutton Grammar School, Wallington County Grammar School, Wallington High School for Girl

    Yes.  The rank order of the entrance examinations at each of these schools will be determined on the basis of the aggregate scores of the Selective Eligibility Test and the papers which make up the second stage Entrance Examination at each of these selective schools.  For the specific ratio to be applied for each school you are advised to look further at the websites of the individual schools.

  • Do you make allowances for age (as in a child whose birthday is at one end of the school year)?

The Admissions Offices at the participating schools are not able to provide any further information about your child’s performance in the tests.

    Travel Arrangements to Nonsuch High School for Girls

     Selective Eligibility Test 17 September 2014

     

    You should be aware that the large number of girls being tested will lead to considerable traffic congestion in the vicinity of the school. Please consider our neighbours in streets near the school and do ensure that you allow sufficient time to arrive promptly at the school.  Also be aware that, due to building work, some areas of the school site are out of bounds.

     

    On arrival at your allocated Zone (which is shown on the email), you will be met by staff and Year 9 Nonsuch students who will take your daughter to the relevant room. (Please refer to the pdf maps to show where the zones are located).

     

    By Foot:

     

    Zone A can be accessed via the school’s back gate into Nonsuch Park past the netball courts on your right or via the Bus Stop area just right of the main gate to the school.

    Zone B can be accessed via the main gate leading to the front of the school.

    Zone C can be accessed via the Bus Stop area just right of the main gate to the school.

    Zone D can be accessed via the main reception at the front of the school opposite the playing fields.

     

    By Bus:

     

    There are frequent bus services to Cheam Village from both Sutton (Bus 470, 213, 151 or X26) and North Cheam (Bus 213, X26 or 151).  From the crossroads in the village, walk along Ewell Road and enter via the relevant Zone.

     

    By Train:

     

    Cheam station is on the railway line between Epsom and Sutton. The school is approximately 10 minutes’ walk from the station and is reached by walking along Ewell Road or Kingsway/Anne Boleyn’s Walk.

     

    By Car:

     

    Weather permitting, there should be some parking available on site. There is also a public car park (Kingsway) in Anne Boleyn’s Walk.

     

    A further option is to park your car in Nonsuch Park, however the Cheam Gate car park in Nonsuch Park is NOT available for parking. Car parks available are located on the north side of the park on London Road, about a fifteen minute walk from the school.

     

    Please do not park in Roberts Close or the Grumpy Mole pub opposite the school, nor in Anne Boleyn’s Walk or any other roads near the school as this causes considerable inconvenience and annoyance to our neighbours.

     

    Disabled Parking:

     

    On-site parking will be made available for holders of blue Disabled Badges.  Please email the school in advance of Testing Day if you need to use this facility at office@nonsuch.sutton.sch.uk.

     

    Drop Off Option

     

    You may drop off your daughter at Zone C and drive out of the school immediately.  If you choose to use this facility, you are strongly urged to arrive in plenty of time.  Year 9 students, supervised by adults, will be on hand to meet your daughter as she gets out of the car and take her to the relevant Zone. Please note you will not be able to wait/park your car here.  

     

    Due to the large number of girls taking the test, it is strongly advised that you share a car wherever possible.

     

    Refreshments:  The school’s canteen is open and will be serving food and drinks all day. The cafeteria at David Lloyd Leisure Centre on the school’s site will also be open for refreshments.

  • SET unfit guidance for 17 September 2014

    SELECTIVE ELIGIBILITY TEST

     (FOR SEPTEMBER 2015 ENTRY)

     

     

    IMPORTANT GUIDANCE ON WHAT YOU SHOULD DO IF YOU THINK YOUR CHILD IS NOT FIT, WHETHER FOR MEDICAL OR OTHER REASONS, TO SIT THE SELECTIVE ELIGIBILITY TEST ON

    WEDNESDAY 17 SEPTEMBER 2014

     

    When a child says he/she is not feeling well, it is sometimes difficult for a parent to decide what to do. Is he/she just anxious or really sick? 

     

    It is important that your son/daughter is given the opportunity to do his/her very best in the Selective Eligibility Tests which is not possible if he/she is not ‘fit’ to sit the test. Not being fit means that your son’s/daughter’s condition or well-being on the day of the test, other than suffering from normal and expected levels of anxiety, is such that his/her performance during the test may be impaired.

     

    If you believe your child is not fit to take the test on Wednesday 17 September, you must notify the allocated test centre between 8.00am and 8.30am by telephone. (Telephone Number for Nonsuch High School for Girls: 0208 394 3400)

     

    DO NOT BRING HIM/HER TO THE TEST.

     

    You must consult your family doctor to obtain written confirmation that your son/daughter was not fit to sit the test and explaining why he/she was not fit to do so. This written confirmation from your doctor will be required for your son/daughter to be given an alternative date for the test and must be received by the test centre no later than Tuesday 23 September 2014.
