At 13+ we admit up to 70 pupils each year. The Main Entrance Examinations will be held in the February of a candidate’s Year 7.
For children in UK Prep Schools, Haileybury offers an earlier entrance procedure called the Early Tests. This involves candidates taking the entrance examinations in the February of their Year 6 for a deferred, confirmed place for Year 9.

- Online Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT) across the four areas of Verbal, Non-verbal, Quantitative and Spatial reasoning
- Interview with a member of the senior academic team
- Submission of a piece of work which will form the basis of discussion at interview
- School reports and a reference from the candidate’s current school
