Year 7 (11+) Entry in 2022

Thank you for your interest in finding out more about St Paul’s School.

The boys who join us at 11+ (Year 7) are motivated and academically curious with a strong all-round intellectual ability. They relish a dynamic, varied, fun and enriching education from the age of 11 to 18. They join St Paul’s Juniors for two years and then transfer to St Paul’s School at 13+ (Year 9).

Beyond the classroom, we offer 45 acres of green open space on the banks of the Thames in Barnes, London, close to Hammersmith. There are over 80 societies to choose from, specialist facilities for music, drama and art, and sporting activities from rugby to cricket and squash to swimming.

Nurturing pastoral care is at the heart of St Paul’s and we are proud to be leading the way in pupil safety and wellbeing practices throughout the Independent sector. Your son will be well supported throughout his journey with us and will be equipped with the skills to contribute to wider society long after he has left St Paul’s.

Every year, approximately 36 boys join St Paul’s in Year 7.  Applications have just closed for 2022 entry but will open on 1 December 2021 for entry in 2023 for boys born between 1 September 2011 and 31 August 2012.

Assistance with Fees

We are committed to providing an exceptional education to any boy who fulfils the entrance criteria, regardless of social or demographic background. Each year there are funds available for free and subsidised places at all entry points, with a focus on 11+ and 16+ to reflect the natural state school entry points. As with all other entrants, applicants hoping to benefit from a bursary must first gain a place at the school on academic merit. If you wish to apply for a bursary, parents will be asked to complete a means-test assessment form designed to establish the level of financial support available. As family circumstances may change, the level of bursary support is reassessed annually. At registration, you may indicate that you wish to be assessed for a bursary.
