Ashmole Academy Music Entry 2020


Dear Head Teacher


I would be grateful if you could advise your Year 5 parents that if they wish to apply to Ashmole Academy for entry in September 2020 under the Musical Aptitude criteria, they need to apply to the school by Friday 17th May 2019


The first part of the tests will take place in June 2019.  Further details and the application form can be found on the school website (please see below link) or alternatively please contact me in the School Office for more information.


Thank you for your assistance in this matter.


Kind regards

Information from Dame Alice Owen's School Admissions regarding Consultation

for entry in 2020-2021


The Governing Body of Dame Alice Owen’s School will be consulting on its admissions arrangements for 2020-21 between 19th November 2018 and 6th January 2019.   The proposed arrangements and further details are  available to view on the school website

Should you wish to comment on any aspect of these arrangements please write to

Mrs D Coles, Admissions Officer by 6th January 2019.


Following the end of the consultation period the Governors will meet to consider any comments received and finalise the arrangements accordingly.

The main proposed amendments broadly include:-

a)      Introducing Children Previously Looked After outside of England  as our second oversubscription criterion.  This is an advisory recommendation from the DfE to all schools.

b)      Only inviting the top ranked 325 in the verbal reasoning test to sit the English and Maths papers.  This is not a significant change to the test process as we currently only mark the English and maths papers of the top ranked 325 in the verbal reasoning; but it will mean that children will no longer be sitting tests that aren’t going to be marked. 

c)       Amending the Sixth Form admission requirements for English Language and Maths to a Grade 5.

d)      Further clarification of the Musical Aptitude test. 

e)      A note that siblings are not eligible to sit the Entrance tests
