Assessment Process

We are delighted that you are considering the Senior School for your child. This page gives more detail about the entry and testing process; once you are ready, please register for a place at Stephen Perse via our Admissions Portal.

In Senior School, our entry process includes a cognitive ability test and may include a short interview with a senior member of staff.  Your child will take part in a group activity and then go on to a general interview where we can find out about their likes and dislikes and answer any questions about the school. We will also ask for a reference from the headteacher of your child's current school to find out more about them.

Please note that we only accept general entry to the Senior School at Year 7 and 9. Places for Year 8 and 10 only come up subject to availability. We do not accept entries for Year 11, apart from in exceptional circumstances.
