Banding Assessment

Due to the introduction of the national lockdown on Thursday 5th November and increasing incidents of COVID-19 in local schools, we have unfortunately taken the decision to cancel the Banding Assessments that were due to take place at Herne Bay High School on Tuesday 17th, Thursday 19th and Monday 23rd November.

If you submitted a banding assessment application form for your child we will contact you directly regarding alternative arrangements.

All students who wish to attend Herne Bay High School must have sat the banding assessment; it does not guarantee your child a place at our school, but students will not be offered a place if they have not sat the assessment. 

Please be aware that if your child attends one of our main feeder primary schools below, we have arranged for them to sit the banding assessment during week commencing 9th November and therefore, there is no requirement for you to complete the banding assessment application form

If your child attends one of the schools listed above and you do not wish for them to sit the banding assessment please email year6@hernebayhigh.org with your child’s name and primary school using the subject line “opting out” 

If however your child does not attend one the above schools and you wish for them to be considered for a place at Herne Bay High School, it is important that you complete the banding assessment application and they sit the assessment at Herne Bay High School on one of the three dates listed below:
