Assessment Process

Junior School

Our entry process includes assessments in English, Maths and non-verbal reasoning as well as an informal interview with David Hewlett, Head of Junior School Fitzwilliam Building. We want to discover whether your child can think creatively, generate ideas, and find interesting solutions to new problems.

Closing date for applications

10 December 2021 - closing date for applications 

Entrance testing dates for 2022

Entry Assessment tests for Years 1,2,3,4 and 5

Entry assessment testing will take place on Saturday 15 January 2022 (more information about the testing will be sent to parents after the closing date for applications). 

Assessments and interviews usually take place in January before a September start date but this can change to suit individual circumstances.

We also ask for a reference from the headteacher of your child's current school. This is an important part of the entry process as it allows us to see a much broader picture of a child than tests alone which can only provide a limited snapshot. School reports are usually requested in early December before entrance testing.

Pupils from Junior School Fitzwilliam Building automatically qualify to graduate to our Senior School at the end of Year 6.
