As in previous years all students wishing to apply for a place at Strood Academy are required to take a Fair Banding Test which is prescribed by GL Assessment. All test dates for Fair Banding have now passed and this test is no longer available for current Year 6 students to sit.
All applicants for places in the Academy will be banded according to the principles of fair banding, using the national profile.
Medway operate an equal preference system which means that parents/carers who intend to put Strood Academy down on their preference form either first, second, third, fourth, fifth or sixth choice will need to take the Fair Banding Test, which will determine what banding group their child should be placed in for admission purposes.
Students who have not taken the banding test (apart from children in care and students with an EHC Plan where the Academy is named in the statement who must always be given priority) will be considered after children who have sat the banding test.
