Senior School Entrance Procedures

Year 7:

Pupils who enter the Senior School will possess sufficient academic ability to allow them to access a wide range of GCSE subjects, currently nine. They would then be expected to take A levels (the current usual three subjects at A level and an AS level) and to go on to the higher educational establishment of their choice.

For external candidates, entry into the Senior School in Year 7 is dependent upon:

  • entrance examination - competitive selective examination in Mathematics, English, verbal and non-verbal reasoning
  • a report from their Junior School
  • a formal meeting with the Head of School or Deputy Head of School, for both the candidate and their parents

Prospective families will need to complete a registration form and return it to our Registrar and School Admissions Manager. [Entrance examination application forms will be made available prior to the annual January examination dates.]
