  • Science: biology, physics and chemistry – 1 hour
  • Language: choice of French, Spanish, German or Latin – 1 hour

Other Assessments and Interviews

Those who reach the minimum pass mark are called back for interview soon after the exam. This will consist of a discussion of academic and co-curricular interests, as well as a short discussion about the stimulus material (an article or photograph), which aims to test the candidate's ability in maths and English.


February of Year 8 Results from the examinations, interview and headteacher's report will be considered and offers for places at the school will be sent by first class post to parents.


Academic scholarships are awarded to those who perform exceptionally well in their examinations and interview. All boys who sit the entrance examinations are automatically considered for an academic scholarship. There is no separate scholarship exam.
