In Lower School (Year 7), we admit up to 60 pupils each year, evenly divided between boys and girls due to the pastoral structure of the School at Year 9.
Entry is by competitive examination using Haileybury’s entrance exams in Mathematics, English, and an online Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning Assessment. In assessing applications, a judgement is made as to the individual candidate’s potential. The school report and reference from the headteacher of their current school are also taken into account, as are other talents in areas such as music, art and sport.
The entrance examinations take place in the November preceding the year of entry (a candidate’s Year 6) and all applicants are interviewed on the day of the assessment.
