BREADCRUMB

11+ and 13+ Registration

Candidates applying for the Senior School at 11+ are assessed on the basis of Entrance Assessments, Interview and a School Reference from the child’s current Headteacher.

Candidates will first sit a series of online ISEB assessments relating to English, Mathematics, Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning. In addition, all candidates will experience a taught lesson at the College, during which they will complete a short creative writing task.

Please note that ISEB guidelines state candidates should only sit the Common Pre-test once in a 12 month period. If your child is sitting this assessment elsewhere, please inform the College in advance.

Upon completion of the assessments, successful candidates are called for interview. It should be noted that we interview many more candidates than we have places to give, but we do so in order to gain as complete as possible an understanding of each child being considered for a place.

To apply for a place at the College, all prospective candidates must complete the relevant online registration form, including any co-curricular scholarships and/or bursary applications. A non-refundable registration fee of £125 is required. Acceptance of registration does not constitute the offer of a place.

Co-curricular scholarships at 11+, in the fields of Art, Music, Drama and Sport, can be applied for at the time of registration. Please read the expected criteria carefully and before application. Potential academic scholars are invited to a specialist interview after the assessment day. The College is committed to offering as many means-tested places as it possibly can, so that families who could not otherwise send their children to an independent school may be able to do so.
