Before registering for a Year 7 place at Graveney School, students and parents are encouraged to attend one of the Open Days, which take place during the summer and autumn months. The events give students the opportunity to tour the school and attend talks by the Principal and Deputies. The school currently doesn’t provide private tours.
For more information on Graveney School’s Open Days, please visit this page on the school’s website.
After taking the Wandsworth Year 6 Test, all candidates need to submit an online application through their Local Authority’s website, or complete a Common Application Form from their LA.
The CAF is completed after the Year 6 test so that the school already has prior information about each pupil’s academic ability before allocating places. Students who don’t attend a Wandsworth school need to register through their LA to be invited to a test session.
Each year, Graveney School admits around 280 pupils, of which 70 places are allocated to those who score highest in the Wandsworth Test.
