All information on the AIM website is for information only, and may be subject to change. For full details of how to apply for a grammar school in Kent please see the Kent County Council site.  KCC Website.

If you would like to apply for a Grammar School place for your child, they will need to sit the 11+, also know as the Kent Test.

To apply or a place for your child in year 7 in September 2021, the process is as follows:

Key Dates:

  • 1st June 2020 - Applications for the Kent Test open, and stay open until 3rd July 2020.
  • 10th September 2020* - Kent test takes place in child's own Kent primary schools
  • 12th September 2020* - Kent Test for children outside Kent
  • October 2020 - Results of the Kent Test are released.
  • September 2020 - Secondary  school applications  open. Once you have your Kent Test scores, you will be able to apply for a Grammar School if your child has met the criteria.

WELCOME Class of 2021!

We now have two groups running each week!

Thank you to Nicola from HP and to a lovely local family for the donation of computers to help our latest group access our classes on Zoom.

If you have a new or recent computer or tablet that you could donate to AIM please get in touch, as we have more children using borrowed, shared and outdated tech to access the school learning and our AIM classes.
