Admission Banding Test for 2022 Entry

The admission banding test for Year 7 for 2022 entry is scheduled to be held on Saturday 13 November 2021. This is a shared arrangement between Dunraven and four other Lambeth secondary schools. The test is used to administer Dunraven’s Fair Banding process for Year 7 admissions to ensure a comprehensive intake of children.
Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it might not be feasible or safe to invite all applicants to sit the test on one single day at Dunraven in the Autumn. If the test cannot take place at Dunraven on Saturday 13 November as scheduled, then alternative arrangements will be made to hold the test during the week either before or after that date. In such case, children will be invited to sit the test on a weekday along with other applicants from their primary school.

A Supplementary Information Form (SIF) must be submitted direct to Dunraven in order to register your child for the test and it will be available on our website from September 2021. The deadline to submit the SIF is 31 October 2021. Without this, your child will not be invited to sit the test at Dunraven and this could affect the likelihood of an offer of a place at the school. For more information on the test, please see the Guidelines to Application and Frequently Asked Questions documents that will be available on our website from September HERE. Families who have registered for the test will be written to directly with details of their child’s test session nearer the time. We thank all families for their patience and will keep applicants updated on any change in arrangements.
