Entrance assessments take place throughout the year, and the circumstances depend on the year group for which you are applying.
Nursery and Junior House
There is no set date for entry into Early Years (Nursery and Reception) and Years 1 – 6. All assessments take place during the school day and are age-appropriate.
Years 7 and 9
Assessment consists of examination, interview and school report. Pupils complete two papers: an English paper consisting of a short, imaginative writing piece on a given theme; and a verbal, non-verbal, quantitative and spatial reasoning paper. No extra preparation is necessary.
Assessment consists of examination, interview, school reference and GCSE results. The Sixth Form Entrance Examinations take place in November. Scholarships and bursaries are awarded following GCSE results.
While there are standard entry points and assessment dates at the school, we remain open to entrants at any stage and time of the year. Pupils find that they integrate very quickly, so we would encourage you to get in touch.
