Entry at 13+

The closing date for applications to Year 9 in September 2018 has now passed. We welcome applications from students interested in joining Year 9 for entry in September 2019 and beyond.

For those candidates who have missed our application deadlines: while we cannot guarantee that we will be able to process late applications, we advise you to send a copy of the candidate's latest school reports and a covering letter outlining their strengths and interests, and we will keep the information on file.

We will contact you if we are able to proceed with an application at a future date.

For admission to Year 9 (13+) application should be made at least two years prior to entry for both day and boarding places. 

The entrance assessment takes place in the May of Year 7. All candidates take an English and a Maths Test (past papers are available here), a Verbal Reasoning Test, and they take part in a 40-minute group interview. We also request a reference from their school. Unconditional offers are made in the June of Year 7. Those candidates who have performed particularly well in the entrance tests are invited to take part in academic scholarship exams in the May of Year 8. Those candidates who are at a UK prep school are asked to aim for an average of 70% in their Common Entrance if they are not taking the scholarship exams; the results are used for setting purposes.
