All applicants will sit Haileybury papers in Maths and English to assess their fundamental understanding of these core subjects. All applicants will also sit an online cognitive abilities test (CAT4) which includes verbal and non-verbal reasoning, quantitative and spatial assessments. All applicants will also have an interview with a member of staff.
All 16+ applicants also sit a free-choice paper. Applicants can select one paper from a selection of subjects. The choice should reflect the strengths of the pupil.
Where possible, pupils are asked to come on-site and sit the entrance exams. The day is designed to be as pressure-free as possible and the applicants have time to get to know each other and enjoy lunch in the Dining Hall.
Haileybury also offers a remote, online testing session where international pupils may sit their entrance examinations from home and are invigilated by a member of Haileybury staff. Alternatively international applicants may be permitted to sit the entrance exams at offices of the British Council, at the offices of a recognised educational agent working with Haileybury or at a lawyers’ office.
The dates for the 16+ entrance examinations are Wednesday 15 and Saturday 18 November 2023.
