Year 7 Entry 2021

Important Changes to Year 7 Admission Arrangements for September 2021 Entry - click here

Our normal schedule of Open Events has obviously been affected by the corona virus and school being closed. We were not able to hold the Open Evening scheduled for June 2020 and will not be able to hold the Open Morning scheduled for September 12th. We are disappointed not to be able to welcome visitors to our campus but the  virtual tour below will give you an overview of the school.


No Banding Test 

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are removing the requirement for applicants for Year 7 entry in September 2021 to sit our fair banding test.  

Places will be allocated using the published oversubscription criteria (rather than the oversubscription criteria being applied within the ability bands).  

Next Steps for Applying 

Parents therefore no longer need to complete an online supplementary Liverpool College application form (used to register for the banding test). 

Applications for places in Year 7 in September 2021 at Liverpool College should be made to the home local authority using the Preference Form (Common Application Form). The national closing date for applications is 31st October 2020 and applications can be made from 12th September. 


Musical Aptitude Test 

As we will still allocate 10% of the published admissions number (9 places) based on musical aptitude, we will be holding our musical aptitude test (but with some adjustments to practical arrangements to comply with protective health measures). 

Registering for the Musical Aptitude Test 

If you have already submitted an on-line supplementary application form (before the form was removed following the suspension of the banding test) and indicated that you wish your child to take the Musical Aptitude Test on this form, you don’t need to take any further action as you have already registered. 

If you have not yet registered, you should complete and return the separate Musical Aptitude Form which can be downloaded from our website. The form must be completed and returned to Liverpool College by 4.00pm on 25th September 2020. 

We will contact all music aptitude test applicants during the first week of October with details of dates and times. We are expecting over 500 children to take the test so it will have to be carried out over a period of a few days rather than on one day as originally intended.
