Entrance Examination

The examination for 11+ entry is taken in January for admission the following September. Children are assessed through a written English paper and the CEM Select Evaluate Abilities assessment devised by the Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring at the University of Durham. The latter is used to measure verbal, numerical and non-verbal ability. The allocated time for this section is around 1 hour. Please note that neither CEM nor Farnborough Hill provide practice materials for the Abilities assessment, however CEM do offer guidance (see link below) and a familiarisation website which gives parents and children a chance to see what the tests look like.  A link to the CEM Familiarisation Website is provided to parents as soon as they have registered their daughters.  

For 11+ entry, we write to the present school to request a report in the November before the entrance examination.

Examination papers for entry into other year groups are internal to the school and therefore past papers are not available.  For entry into other years, we request a report from the present school as soon as we receive the registration form.

The next 11+ Entrance Examination day is Wednesday 3 January 2018.

The closing date for 2018 registrations is Friday 24 November 2017.
