How to apply for 11+ entry

You can get an application form for 2016 entry in one of three ways:-

  • from the website
  • by emailing the school at:
  • by calling Mrs Nicole Phillips, Director of Admissions, on tel: 0121 415 6056.

The deadline for applications for 2016 entry is Thursday, 26 November 2015 and has now passed. Application Forms for 2017 entry will be available in July 2016.

If you wish to apply for an Assisted Place (there are 30-35 Assisted Places available each year) and your gross household income is under £71,000, then tick the box on the back of the application form. If your household income is under £20,000 your son might qualify for a free place, under £30,000 you might pay about £950 per year, under £40,000 you might pay about £2,200 per year.

Academic Scholarships do not need to be applied for: the boys who do best in the exam will be called for a Scholarship interview. There are about 15 academic scholarships each year with a maximum value of 50%. All Scholarships are awarded for the duration of a boy's time at the School, subject to conduct and good progress.

The examination for 2016 entry takes place on Saturday, 9 January 2016 from 9.30am to 3.00pm and consists of three papers: English, Mathematics and Verbal Reasoning. (Please contact Mrs Phillips if this date is not possible for any reason).

Results will be sent out, by first class post, during February 2016.
