Fair Banding Test & Supplementary Form

For 2025/26 admissions, all Year 6 primary students who name Leigh Academy Blackheath in their list of preferences are required to sit the LAT SE London fair banding test. This is to ensure that children across the full ability range are admitted. It is not possible to pass or fail the test, but those not sitting the test at all, will only be prioritised after those children who have sat the test.

In order to be invited to the test, an online supplementary form must be completed by the closing date of 31st October 2024. Paper copies are available from the Academy if you do not have access to the Internet.

To register for the fair banding test, please click here. 

Please contact if you require any more information.

The applicants will be split into 5 equally sized bands based on their assessment results. Within each band our admission criteria will be applied as set out in our determined admission arrangements.

Fair Banding Tests will be held at one of the Leigh Academies Trust Schools in the South East London Cluster. Parents and Carers will be notified of the venue and time of their child’s test via post, email or phone.

The test is a non verbal reasoning paper and free resources can be downloaded via the GL Assessment website.
