Entrance Examination

2018 Admissions

We are now welcoming applications for 2018. The next entrance exam for entry in September 2018 will take place on Tuesday 9 January 2018. 

For Years 6-10 (10+ - 14+) papers are taken in Verbal Reasoning, English and Mathematics. Some candidates may be called for interview during the week following the exam.

Provision is sometimes made for a later examination, but only for those who have already applied but were unable to sit in January due to illness. This is subject to places still being available.

Entry to the Sixth Form is by interview, offers of a place being conditional upon the GCSE grades gained. Two grade As and four grade Bs is the minimum requirement, ideally with grade As in the subjects to be followed at A level.

Applications from able under-age candidates are also considered and there is provision for entry at other times of the year, particularly for those moving into the area, provided there are places available in the relevant year group.

Candidates with special needs (such as vision impairment or dyslexia) should inform the school when first making contact.
