There are three main entry points to the Upper: Year 7, Year 9 and the Lower Sixth.
Please look at our online Upper Prospectus to find out more about the Upper school.

If you are looking for information about Sixth Form entry please visit the Sixth Form admissions section. Occasionally places become available in other year groups, and it is always worth contacting our admissions department to check the current situation.
In Year 7 there are about 70 external places available and in Year 9 around 40 external places available. In Year 7 in particular we draw from a very wide range of maintained sector primary schools.
We encourage you to visit the School before applying for a place.
We hold open mornings in both the Michaelmas and Summer terms, and a taster morning in October.
We also hold afternoon tours most weeks during term-time so that you can get a feel for the School on a normal working day.
Once you have decided that The Perse is the right school for your child, the next step is to apply for a place before the application deadline. We will seek a confidential reference from your child’s current school, and invite them into school for their entrance examination.
We have a small number of academic and music scholarships available in Year 7 and Year 9 to pupils of exceptional merit. These financial awards are one-off payments of £450.
