We will be administering a new style of entrance exam this year. It will comprise of two components: one computer test and one written exam. As we will be using the ICT rooms, exams will have strict time slots. If you book to attend the exam, we will send each applicant a practice link. This link will allow applicants to become familiar with the style of the exam they will sit.
Please note, the content of the exam is not linked to year 6 programmes of study at primary school. This removes the need for parents to provide focussed tutoring of their child prior to sitting the entrance exam.
Entrance exam results will not be shared with parents as they will be received by the school in a cognitive numerical number that does not fit with a percentage result. The exam measures each child’s cognitive ability.
Please note, there is no scholarship exam sitting this year. Scholarships, if awarded, will be selected from the entire applicant body.
Please also note that, if you are offered a place at the school, you will be asked to secure the place within three weeks of the offer being made. The cohort number for next year’s year 7 cohort has been set and when met, offers made but not accepted will be withdrawn. We will place your offer onto a waiting list and entrance for September 2019 will not be guaranteed unless a child withdraws and the place secured with a deposit.
