They are assessed in literacy, numeracy and reasoning. There are also interviews as well as group activities. If offered a conditional place, all children need to secure a pass mark of 55% in their Year 8 ISEB 13+ Common Entrance Exams. Alternatively, they may take the scholarship exam or the school’s own assessment if not at a prep school. 16+ entry is through tests in November of Year 11 along with an interview.
