Information & Help with the Northern Ireland Transfer Test


Northern Ireland Grammar Schools the require an entrance assessment

Below is a list of all Northern Ireland Grammar Schools that require children to take the Transfer Test as part of their admission process*.

Any child entering P7 in September and wanting to attend any of the Grammar Schools listed below should sit the AQE's Common Entrance Assessment (CEA) and/or the PPTC's GL Assessment.

Most Schools only accept either the AQE or the GL, however a few Schools give the choice of both. In this case your child could sit either test or both.

Some Schools may have specific admission requirements so please visit their website by clicking the link for any additional information not available on this website.

*Lagan College is an all-ability school. 65% of their Year 8 intake will be admitted via our all ability route. This route does not require any assessment to be undertaken by students. Lagan College accepts the GL & the AQE although they are only an assessment centre for the PPTC (GL Assessment)
