Testing will not go ahead for next year’s secondary intake
Traditionally those applying to Brooke Weston Academy, Corby Business Academy, Corby Technical School and Kettering Science Academy are invited to sit a non-verbal reasoning test to ensure that each school has a balanced intake of students of all abilities.
This year, due to the national lockdown, the normal method of assembling hundreds of students for testing in December was not considered to be practical or safe.
The Trust held a consultation for parents/carers and applied to the Department for Education and Regional Schools Commissioner for places to be allocated for the 2021 intake without the fair banding element of assessment.
