Approximately 60 boys aged 7 will be admitted into three classes each year. Registration takes place between 1st January and 31st October, the year before entry.
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, Maths and Reasoning (verbal and non-verbal) tests. Tests will be administered in classrooms by two teachers who 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. Families who are not successful in obtaining a place for their son at age 7 may put his name on a waiting list should a place become available.
Ordinarily, Open Evenings are held each year and parents are advised to bring their sons to one of them. Visitors will have the opportunity to tour the School with a pupil, talk to staff and meet the Headmaster. Due to social distancing guidelines, Open Evenings in 2021 will be run remotely and advanced booking is required. To reserve your place, please visit: https://ucs.onlineopendays.com/
