Key Points about 7+ Exams School Entrance

  • Some parents wait until the end of Year 6 to move their children to a secondary school.
  • Other parents move them earlier, particularly if you are considering moving your child from a state primary school to an independent preparatory school.
  • Such prep schools primarily admit pupils at the beginning of Key Stage 2. Thus, the 7+ admissions tests are taken at the end of Year 2.

The admissions process varies from school to school, however, usually the tests will involve English and mathematics. Some schools also include a reasoning test too, which can include both verbal and non-verbal reasoning. They can be written or computer-based tests. As with other entrance stages, schools often ask for a report from the child’s current school and those that pass the examination will often be asked back for an interview.

When 7+ exams happen
