Applicants for entry September 2022 will sit tests in Mathematics, Science, English & Humanities.  Children who do well in these examinations will be invited for interview.


Interviews will be conducted by a member of the Senior School staff; a report from the candidate’s current school will be taken into account.  The interviews are primarily academic and do not need special preparation, but it may useful if children can talk about how they enjoy spending their time, and describe any particular achievements or interests.
