Entrance Tests for entry in September 2016 will take place on Saturday 9 January 2016.
For Year 7 the Entrance Test consists of papers in Maths, English, Verbal Reasoning. All candidates will also have a short interview/chat with a Perse teacher along with a short humanities video/questions exercise about which more information can be found here. A confidential reference will be sought from the child’s current school.
Pupils with Special Educational Needs should discuss their application with the school prior to the Entrance Test.
Year 7 specimen papers
Minor changes have been made to the examination paper this year, which are reflected in the specimen papers below.
However, if you would like to refer to previous papers in a different format, please see the archive below.
This short exercise requires no preparation but some example information can be found here.
Please note: the School cannot enter into any correspondence regarding these example answers or clarify questions/acceptable solutions further. It is important that full working is shown with solutions because many marks are awarded for that working and in some cases more than one answer will be accepted for some problems.
