Entrance Tests

Applicants for entry at 7+ are invited into the Preparatory School for testing on two separate occasions in the January before proposed entry.

The purpose of our entrance processes is not to make Bancroft’s more academically selective, but to help us make offers to children who we feel will benefit most from the education we offer. We receive many more applications than we have places.  Some candidates may be placed on a waiting list following the tests and may be offered places if vacancies arise.


A single non-returnable registration fee of £60 is required, unless only applying for a Means Tested Award (Francis Bancroft Scholarship) in which instance a reduced registration fee of £20 is payable. Cheques should be made payable to Bancroft’s School.  A copy of the child’s full birth certificate must accompany all applications.
