Entry to St Paul’s at 7/8+

Entry to St Paul’s Juniors is selective: our assessment process is designed to identify boys who have a natural flair for learning and who will thrive on our education.

7+ Entry

Boys may be registered for St Paul’s Juniors from the October they start Year One. We admit fifty-four boys at the 7+ entry point from a wide range of state and independent schools in and around London. 7+ pupils enter our Lower First Year, a year that acts as a period of settling in and adjusting to life in a large, fast moving junior school. The timetable allows the boys to spend most of their time in their own form room, ensuring a sense of routine and stability.

8+ Entry

Boys entering St Paul’s Juniors at 8+ join the Upper First Year. They quickly get to know their classmates who started at St Paul’s Juniors the year before and together they create a year group of four forms based in the main school building. Boys continue to spend the majority of their time with their form teachers, but by the end of the Upper First they are ready for the transition to the ‘senior school’ style of learning in the Second Year and beyond.

Boys may be registered for St Paul’s Juniors from the October they start Year Two. For entry at 8+, a boy’s eighth birthday must fall on or before 31 August in his year of entry.

The application process for 7+ and 8+ entry in 2022 is now open. Please click here to complete our online application form.
