Please familiarise yourself with our admissions criteria and note that all applicants including those with sibling links who wish to attend Sir Christopher Hatton MUST take part in a fair banding test.

These will take place from 4.00pm week commencing the 9th November 2020 where possible students will be invited in their primary bubbles.

Alongside this, based on Sir Christopher Hatton's mathematics and ICT specialism, 10% of our available places are offered through pupils siting the ICT aptitude ‘test’ during the Autumn term of year 6.  Applications for both tests are via the Supplementary Information Form.  The date and time of your child's Fair Banding / ICT test will be confirmed after the deadline.


We invite you to our Year 6 *Remote Information Evenings* on the 5th and 6th October 2020.  Owing to current restrictions these will be held via Zoom all booking details can be located here.   If you have any questions regards admission to Sir Christopher Hatton into Year 7 September 2021 please email our dedicated team at: .
