Stroud High School recognises students eligible for Pupil Premium and Service Pupil Premium.
Please see our Admissions Policy for further details.
If you are eligible for Pupil Premium, and meet the qualifying score, you will be ranked above non-Pupil Premium students.
Before sitting the entrance test, you will be invited to attend our Familiarisation Summer School. This will give you the chance to spend two days at the school with our staff who will help you become familiar with the school.
You will be given access to an online familiarisation programme that will support you step-by-step through the different types of test questions. This programme is only available to Pupil Premium students.
If you are Service Pupil Premium, and meet the qualifying score, you will place on the rank alongside Pupil Premium students. This means that you will be ranked above non-Pupil Premium students and given priority. We recognise that Stroud High School is currently the only Gloucestershire Grammar school that prioritises Service Pupil Premium in their admissions policy. For this reason, you are unfortunately not eligible for the Pupil Premium familiarisation programme.
You can get confirmation of your eligibility for Service Pupil Premium from your child’s primary school.
