Joining Us at 7+

Admission to Year 3 

Although 4+ is the main entry point to the school, we receive a high number of applications for entry into Year 3.  We hold a formal assessment morning for candidates when they are in the Autumn Term of Year 2. For entry to Year 3 in September 2022, this will be held on Saturday 20th November. Deadline for registrations is Friday 5th November. 

Occasional places may be available for later applicants.  Below are details of the process.

Register your Child 

The first step is to register your child with us by clicking here.  Please contact us regarding availability for tours in light of the ongoing Covid situation. We do offer out-of-hours tours to enable you to bring your child with you.

Reports and References 

After registering your child with us, please submit a copy of his last school report (normally from the end of Year 1). At this stage we will write to your child's current school for a confidential pupil reference to support their application.

The Assessment Morning 

The Assessment Morning will normally be held on a Saturday in November. During the assessment morning the children will undertake tests in both Maths and English (some tests may be held online), take part in a fun team-building activity, enjoy break/play time and participate in a lively group discussion with a senior member of staff. 

Offer and Acceptance of Place 

We aim to email our offers within a week of the Assessment Morning. Offers for Year 3 in September 2022 will be sent via email on Wednesday 24th November.

Children will be offered places according to

  • the results of the assessments,
  • their school reports and references,
  • feedback from all members of staff; and
  • the number of places available.

Places are offered on a first-come-first-served basis upon return of the signed Parent Contract and deposit payment. Siblings who have met the criteria and who have subsequently been offered a place will be given priority in the event of limited spaces.
