Examination papers are taken in English, Mathematics and Verbal Reasoning. If successful in these papers, candidates will be invited for a one-to-one interview with a member of staff which will either be of a general nature, or with an English or Mathematics focus (depending on the weaker subject). Please note that not everyone interviewed will be offered a place.
The Mathematics and English papers are produced in-house and sample questions are available below.
10+ Deferred Entry
Our 10+ deferred examination is for pupils in Year 5 at the time of the entrance assessments. It offers them the opportunity to secure an 11+ place a year early whilst continuing their primary education at their current school. Examination papers are taken in English, Mathematics and Verbal Reasoning. The Mathematics and English papers are broadly in line with age-appropriate National Curriculum levels. Those that perform strongly in all these papers will be invited for interview; however, not everyone interviewed will be offered a place.
Those pupils that accept a 10+ deferred place will not be required to sit the 11+ exam the following year unless parents wish them to be considered for Fee Assistance or an Academic Scholarship. Further details of the Scholarship application process will be sent in the Autumn term prior to the year of entry. Candidates who either decline or are not offered a deferred entry place can re-register to sit the 11+ exam the following year.
There are up to 10 places available for 13+ entry.
All 13+ candidates will sit examination papers in Mathematics, English, a Modern Language (French, Spanish or German) and Science in the November when they are in Year 8. The candidates who do well enough in the examinations will be invited for subject-based and general interviews. Places will be offered by the end of the Autumn term.
As it is not currently possible to visit the School in person we would like to offer our interested families the opportunity to speak with a member of the Admissions Team, face to face, via a remote conferencing service. The appointments will start from 20th April. Please click below to make a booking:
