Our Junior Year offers a variety of exciting and challenging experiences.

We know that the transition from primary to secondary school can be a daunting time for parents and pupils alike, so making the move to Trinity at Year 6 will offer your son the opportunity to work in an academically rigorous environment, whilst also benefiting from the huge range of co-curricular opportunities we offer.

Freed from the distraction of having to prepare for SATs, your son will be able to make the most of a year of intellectual and creative challenges, as well as co-curricular opportunities which will inspire, extend and energise his mind.

Candidates must be over the age of 10 but be under 11 on 1st September of year of entry.

They will sit the following papers:

  • English comprehension and essay – 1 hour
  • Mathematics – 1 hour
  • Verbal reasoning – 1 hour

If your son is successful in our entrance examinations, he will be invited to attend an interview with a member of our teaching staff. This is a great opportunity for us to get to know your son better and will take place shortly after the entrance examination. You will be notified by our admissions team when a date has been set.

The conversation focuses on your son’s strengths at school, his interests, and any weaknesses which might have emerged in their examination papers. Candidates are asked to bring a small sample of their school work, or an object of interest, to act as a starting point for discussion. This could be written work, art, or something made at school or home.
