Belfast Royal Academy is pleased to once again be an Assessment Centre for AQE Common Entrance Assessment (CEA). In early October, everyone who is registered to sit the AQE tests at Belfast Royal Academy will receive an invitation to come along to a Familiarisation Afternoon that will take place on Friday 17th October at 2.30pm.
Although sitting the CEA papers in a grammar school will be a new experience for the P7 pupils, we intend to do what we can to ensure that it is not a stressful one and we strongly encourage you to attend. We aim to make the format of the Familiarisation Afternoon as similar as possible to that of each of the assessment mornings to help pupils become familiar with the surroundings in which they will be sitting the AQE papers. The familiarisation session should last approximately one hour.
We ask that the children are each accompanied by one parent. The Headmaster will speak to parents about the assessment and will outline Belfast Royal Academy’s admissions criteria.
We look forward to seeing you on 17th October.
Headmaster: Mr. J. M. G. Dickson.
