Entrance Assessment

The main entry points to our senior school are at 11+ (Year 7) and 13+ (Year 9), although pupils are welcome in all year groups at any point during the academic year, as we run a rolling admissions system.

Prospective senior pupils wishing to join Year 7 or Year 9 for intake the following academic year, are invited to sit our entrance assessment which is held every year in early November. However, assessments can be arranged at any point throughout the year. The entrance assessment comprises of papers in English, Mathematics, verbal and non-verbal reasoning skills. NO specific coaching is necessary for these tests.IMG 2742 Custom
