Private School Entrance Exams

There are many excellent private schools, which require prospective students to sit an a private school entrance examination. For the majority of schools the topics examined are Math, English, Verbal and Non-Verbal reasoning. The schools need a bench mark and evidence so they can cater for the student’s educational needs. Preparing students for the 11 Plus is the ideal way to cover the depth of subjects required. This preparation also enables student to aim for scholarship places.

Many private schools offer a variety of scholarships. These can range from sport, drama, music and academic depending on the school. Scholarships are usually for the entire career of the student at the school so can be very financially advantageous. The value of the scholarship is usually a percentage of the fees and typically ranges from 10% to 25% depending on the school and their current policy.

Interviewing candidates and their parents is common with students often being asked to give a short presentation. We have sessions on interviewing skills at all levels and are fully experienced in guiding students and parents through the preparation for the exams and the interviews. Guidance and advice is also available on putting together a project to display at the interviews.

Congratulations to all of our students who have been offered independent school scholarships!

Over 30 years in preparing children for private school entrance exams we have never had a student turned down for an independent (private) school place, with many of our students being offered scholarships.  

Our successful students have been offered scholarships at:

St Mary's Colchester
Ipswich School
Royal Hospital School
New Hall Chelmsford
Brentwood School
Woodbridge School
Colchester High School
St Joseph's College

These offer reduced school fees for the entire time a student attends the school; in real terms these are worth thousands of pounds.
