We prepare children for their 11+ and 13+ Common Entrance exams, and also for the independent entrance exams (from 7+ to 16+) set by various private schools. We have helped students gain places to Eton, Harrow, Westminster, Winchester, Wycombe Abbey, Sevenoaks, Kings Canterbury, St. Paul’s and many more.
Common Entrance (11+ or 13+) is the exam taken by students aiming to secure a place at independent secondary (senior) schools. The candidates generally sit the exams at their prep (or junior) school, with the papers being marked by the senior schools to which they are applying. 11+ and 13+ Common Entrance exams are set by the Independent Schools Examinations Board (ISEB). Some individual senior schools set their own entrance exams.
Each school has its own pass mark for the ISEB exams. Some students choose to sit Scholarship papers set either by the ISEB or by their prospective senior school; these are often harder than the standard Common Entrance exams - but can lead to assisted places.
