We ask all candidates to take our entrance examinations in January. We do take notice of Common Entrance scores but only as a way of helping to decide setting when the child joins us. It is not possible to gain admission through the Common Entrance route alone. Full details will be sent to all registered candidates.
Papers will be set in Mathematics, English, a Modern Language (French, German, Spanish or Latin) and Science. We are seeking a minimum performance level of 55% as an average across all four papers. Last year the average obtained was approximately 70%.

The English examination will be in two sections:
In Section A candidates will be asked to read a passage or poem and answer questions which test their powers of comprehension.
In Section B, the candidates will be required to display their ability in writing a structured and sustained response to a title requiring persuasive or reflective writing.
Technical matters such as spelling, punctuation and grammar are important in both sections.
Number of places available: we expect to have places for approximately 15 pupils to enter the school in Year 9 in September, 2014. The exact number will depend on the number of pupils in Year 8 in 2013 and on the quality of the 13+ applicants.
