Admissions

 

11+ selection is based upon a two-part examination lasting approximately 1½ hours and a separate interview prior to the examination.  The first part is an on-line test, designed to identify potential rather than ‘taught’ skills. The on-line test consists of English, Maths and Verbal Reasoning. The second part of the examination is a short test of creative writing completed by hand. 

Approximately 70% of our boys from maintained schools and 30% from private schools. Approximate intake is 70 boys at 11+

13+ selection is based upon performance in our entrance examinations in Maths, English, French and Science and most importantly a personal interview with the Head.  We take special note of potential and achievement in music, the creative and performing arts as well as the capacity of any candidate to contribute fully to the extra-curricular life of the School. We look for potential and achievement in at least one major academic subject. Approximate intake is 40 boys at 13+.

The closing date for 11+ and 13+ Application forms is 31st October 2016. 

Entrance examinations for 11+ and 13+ entry will be held on Thursday 12th January 2017.
