Entrance Testing

Each year, King’s St Alban’s holds an entrance test day in February for all children looking to join in Years 3 – 6 in the following September.

The entrance testing date for entry in September 2019 is Saturday 26th January 2019.

Pre-Prep Entry: Age 4 - 7

Places in the Pre-Prep Department (Reception- Year 2) are offered subject to a morning spent in school. Those interested must register and arrangements will then be made for your child to visit school.

Junior School Entry: Age 7 - 11

Places in the Junior School are offered subject to passing our entrance tests. There is no need for special preparation - the English and Maths paper will be familiar and is worked through orally with the younger children. There is time to practise some verbal reasoning questions and the children soon get the hang of them. All tests are age-standardised. There is time for a break with a drink and a snack in the morning and a home cooked meal at lunchtime. The experience is organised so that the children bounce out feeling that they have had a successful day.

During our Entrance Day, our teaching staff are on hand and will work with the children in small groups; it is not a question of pass or fail, but of whether each child will thrive at King's.
