Registration is now open for the 2024 ACEN Parent Summit, now in its third year, aimed at parents and carers of African Caribbean children currently attending or interested in applying to independent and/or grammar schools.
Saturday 9th March 2024
9.30am to 4.30pm
Wimbledon High School, Mansel Rd, London, SW19 4AB
The event will provide attendees with the opportunity to understand the admissions processes for the 7+, 11+ & 13+ entry points.
Admissions guidance, advice, and information on bursary and scholarship applications will be provided directly by a selection of schools themselves. In addition, Black families who currently have children in independent and/or grammar schools, alongside a panel of current students, will share valuable insights into their recent experiences of successfully navigating the admissions process, the transition, and settling into their settings.
We are unable to facilitate children below the age of 7 on the day and we ask that this is strictly adhered to, so all attendees and facilitators can participate in this information event with minimal disruption. However, students aged 7+ are welcome and they will be provided with the opportunity to participate in activities and workshops on the day, which will include tips and a taster of the topics and techniques that selective school exams require. This includes online testing provided by Paideia, an expert exam support company, the report of which will be provided to parents/carers.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided for all attendees.
Tickets are £11.95 per adult, and children (7+ only) are free. Families in receipt of pupil premium are also welcome to attend for free.
