Selection Procedure for 11+

Entrance examinations to St Paul’s Juniors at 11+ have two stages followed by an interview at the school.

All Year 6 11+ candidates are required to take the ISEB online pre-test. They will be entered for this test by us and can sit the test here at St Paul’s. Those 11+ candidates who are successful in the ISEB pre-test are invited back to sit written examinations in English and Mathematics in January.

If you are applying for a bursary award, the application process for that begins if your son is invited back for the written examinations in January.

If your son performs well in the written exams, he will be invited back for interview. These begin two weeks after the examination date. Your son will meet senior members of staff in his interview, as well as the Head. At the same time, you will also have the opportunity to meet the Head.

Overseas candidates will be seen in the same week as the examination.

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