Admissions – Music Aptitude


From September 2020, 10% of our Year 7 intake to the Frances Bardsley Academy will be selected by music aptitude. The selection will take place through the use of a Music Aptitude test.

The test is designed to assess music aptitude and not musical ability.

Whilst we request information about musical instruments played by students this does not make part of the criteria for selection. Students will not be disadvantaged for not currently being able to play a musical instrument; however, there is an expectation that they will partake in the musical life of the school once they join.


We are suspending the Music aptitude process for the 2021- 2022 cohort following government advice. Should you have any questions please email us: info@fbaok.co.uk
