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:
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.
At 10+, you can also apply for a maximum of two scholarships in Sport, Drama, Music, Art and Design & Technology. You should indicate which scholarships you want to apply for, and complete the relevant forms, when you make your application. Scholarship forms will be completed online during the application process which opens in September 2020.
You will hear from our students and teachers and see some of our outstanding facilities which cater for varied interests. We hope to welcome you to the school in person in the near future to experience our warm and happy atmosphere.
