Entrance examinations

A confidential report is requested from each candidate’s current school and this plays an important part in the selection procedure.

The entrance assessment in January will consist of English and Maths tests. Tests will be administered in classrooms and a teacher will also observe social interaction and behaviour. The boys will have the opportunity to play, and will be given light refreshments during the three-hour period they attend the school.

The performance of boys in the autumn assessments (when they visit the school) is included along with entrance assessment scores and any other relevant information before decisions about admissions are made.
