Apply for the Specialist Test
What are specialist technology places?
Ashcroft Technology Academy has specialisms in both Design Technology and Information Technology. Specialist technology places will be allocated to children who demonstrate a particular aptitude for these subject areas and are therefore likely to benefit from specialist courses at the Academy.
How many specialist places are available?
There are 24 places available each year.
How will aptitude for technology be assessed?
Children applying for specialist technology places will be required to attend the Academy on a designated day and will sit a short test comprising 40 multiple choice questions covering elements of Technology. No specialist knowledge of Technology is required. An invitation letter and a sample question paper will be sent to parents ahead of the test which is scheduled to take place on Monday 16 and Tuesday 17 October 2023.
