Entrance Exams

All registered applicants will be invited to sit examinations in English, Mathematics and Verbal Reasoning early in January of Year 5.

Each paper has a duration of one hour. For guidance, successful applicants are those who achieve at least Level 5 in the National Curriculum.

Applicants who performed well on written assessment will be invited back for an interview, usually in late January.


Interviews will last for 15-30 minutes, allowing the school to get to know the applicants beyond the examination results. This stage will focus on the applicant’s strengths and interests, as well as any weaknesses which might have highlighted from their exam results. Applicants are asked to bring a sample of their school work, or an object of interest that serves as the discussion starter.
A mock interview can be a useful and a confidence-building exercise – please contact us if you would like further information on this.
