Entrance Examinations

External candidates seeking entry to our Senior Divisions are asked to complete an Entrance Examination. The date of our Entrance Examinations is Friday 20 January 2017. The exams are set to standards normally expected of pupils of above average ability. Internal candidates who joined King's Juniors prior to or at the start of Year 5 will not be required to sit the 11+ Entrance Examination and will be offered assessed places for the Seniors.

Candidates registered for the entrance examination spend the whole day in school and lunch is provided. The list below shows the exam papers that each year group is required to sit:

Year 7 - VR, Maths, English. See 11+ syllabus

Year 8 - VR, Maths, English. See 12+ syllabus

Year 9 - VR, Maths, English, Science, Modern Foreign Language. 13+ syllabus

Year 10 - Maths, English, Science, Modern Foreign Language. See 14+ syllabus

On receipt of the Registration Form, a booklet with details of the entrance examination syllabus and specimen papers will be sent to parents.


Interviews and Candidate References

An important part of the selection process for Senior Division entry is an interview with you and your child.  This is an opportunity for us to chat with you and find out more about your child and, of course, a further opportunity for you to visit the school and obtain more information from us.  Interviews are with either the Headmaster, Deputy Head, Principal, Vice-Principal or Director of External Relations.

Interviews for Year 7 applicants will be held on Monday 30 January - 3 February 2017 and interviews for applicants for Years 8 - 10 will be on Tuesday 17 January 2017.

We will also contact your child’s existing school to obtain a reference in advance of the Entrance Examination. We wish to build as full a picture of your child as possible and use all of this information in addition to the entrance examination scores.
