There are fifty-four places available at 7+ and registration closes in early October the year before entry. (If you have missed the 7+ registration deadline you may register for 8+.)

Please note that if your son previously sat the 7+ entrance exams, and was registered before 1 May 2018, you do not need to complete the online process for 8+ registration.

You will be required to upload an electronic copy of your son’s passport (bmp, doc, jpg, pdf, png) and make an online payment of the £175 registration fee. The registration fee is non-refundable.

The offer of a place is subject to availability and the school’s entry requirements at the time of offer. Both parents must agree to the application (except in the case of sole custody). By applying you consent to us contacting your son’s current school for a reference.

All applicants will be required to sit a written exam. Successful boys will be invited back for half-day group assessments, after which offers will be made. A reference will be sought from the Head of a boy’s current school. Boys are accepted to St Paul’s Juniors on the understanding that St Paul’s will be their first choice of senior school.

Boys who join St Paul’s Juniors and stay for the full duration of their studies will be automatically registered for transfer to St Paul’s at 13+.
