Admissions / 11+ Entry

All Year 6 11+ candidates are required to take the ISEB online pre-test. They will be entered for this test by us and sit the test here at St Paul’s.

Year 6 11+ candidates who are successful in the ISEB test are invited back to sit written examinations in English and Mathematics in the January the year of entry.

Year 5 11+ deferred candidates will sit an examination in English, Mathematics and Reasoning in the January the year before entry

The fee to sit the examination is £50.

Boys who perform well in the written tests are invited back for a short interview. At the same time, parents also have the opportunity to meet with the Head of St Paul's Juniors. The interviews take place during the week following the tests, enabling boys and their families to know the results within a week.

We are not able to send out past papers in Mathematics and English, however we do provide a syllabus for the 11+ examination and the 11+ deferred examination

The reasoning test for the 11+ deferred, involves verbal and quantitative reasoning; it does not examine non-verbal reasoning. We have produced a 'guide for parents' to help you prepare your son for the reasoning test. The reasoning test results are weighted according to age.
