Admissions / 13+ Entry

Every year approximately 176 boys join St Paul’s School in Year 9. Almost half of these have previously attended St Paul's Juniors, the other half come from a wide range of schools. For boys joining from other schools, the registration and selection process begins in Year 5.

We welcome applicants from state primary schools. In Year 7, you can apply to join our prep school, St Paul's Juniors, or you can follow our 13+ admissions process and join a prep school near you for Years 7 and 8. 

Families of boys applying for assessment in Year 6 must choose either 11+ entry (Year 7) to St Paul’s Juniors or 13+ entry (Year 9) to St Pauls School. You may not register for both.

The next available year for 13+ entry is 2022, which is for boys born between 1 September 2008 and 31 August 2009. The application process will open on 5 November 2018 and close on 13 September 2019.
