Schools Entrance Tests
Liverpool Secondary Schools – Music Places
Four Liverpool secondary schools offer Year 7 music places based on musical aptitude. Those schools are Liverpool College, St. Edwards College, Archbishop Blanch & King David. Places are issued to children based on musical performance and musical aptitude. Liverpool College & St. Edwards set their own admissions test for music, with King David & Archbishop Blanch staging a combined test.
Although each school has its own bespoke process, all require children to perform a piece on their instrument and also take a musical aptitude test. This test measures a child’s natural instinct for music through a series of rhythm, pitch and harmonic tests.
At The Music Place, we have prepared a number of children for these tests and have a very high success rate of children gaining a p;lace at their first choice school. Our weekly sessions prepare children so that they have an understanding of what to expect at a musical aptitude test.
