Year 9 (13+)

Many external candidates are admitted to King’s Senior School at Year 9   (Remove) after sitting Common Entrance papers in the May/June preceding the September of entry.

Before the examination the pupil is invited to visit with his/her parents for a tour of the School followed by an interview with the Headmaster. He/she is also welcome to spend a day or two in School on a “Taster Day” either before or after the examination.

Places are also offered following interview and on the basis of school report for those wishing to join King’s from schools which do not prepare pupils for Common Entrance.

Pupils from schools other than King's may also apply for Music, Sports and Academic scholarships for entry at Year 9. In order to be offered a Scholarship, pupils must have already been offered a place at King’s.

The primary focus in the Senior School is on academic attainment at GCSE and A Level without early specialisation. Pupils are expected to take 9/10 GCSEs and 3 subjects at A level before applying to University.

To arrange a visit to tour and meet the Headmaster, to book a taster session, or to find out more please call our Registrar, Mrs Susan Webb on 01634 888590 or email
