We assess all children who have applied for a place in the academic year prior to entry. We test English, Maths and reasoning and, while we are looking at children working at least one year above the national average, we are also interested in a child’s potential and general academic curiosity. During the testing the children will meet with the Head informally, but there is no interview.
We will request a confidential reference from your child’s current school prior to the entrance testing. Pupils with Special Educational Needs should discuss their application with the School prior to the entrance test.
Our assessment dates for entry in September 2020 are:
Entry for Year 3: 13 – 16 January 2020 (a half day assessment on one of those dates)
Entry for Year 4: 20 January 2020
Entry for Year 5: 21 January 2020
Entry for Year 6: 22 January 2020
Please note that we only provide specimen papers for Year 3 entry.
