We highly recommended you read our admission arrangements before applying for a place at The Leigh UTC
Fair Banding Test
All Year 6 primary students who name The Leigh UTC in their list of preferences are required to sit a fair banding test. This is to ensure that children across the full ability range are admitted. The test can be sat at The Leigh UTC on 25th November 2023.
For parents/carers, who wish for their child to sit the test, please click on your chosen time above in order to register your child for the test. If your child has previously been entitled to access arrangements and received these in primary school, please make sure this is identified on the form. It is essential that this form is completed by Thursday 19th October 2023 (if you want your child to sit the test at The Leigh UTC).
If you are unable to access the online form, please collect a Fair Ability Banding Form from our reception at the address below, and return to us by 19th October 2023.
