Harrow Private Schools Exams

Private School Entrance in Harrow - Harrow Park

London is not only the capital of the United Kingdom but also probably seen as an educational hub for UK students and students from all over the world. Many aspire to get into some of the best universities in the world from here. They might also find that private school education is the best way to prepare for their academic future.

Independent/private schools are spread out over London. These schools are fee-paying. Private schools are run by governors and independent of many regulations that apply to state schools. The biggest of these regulations that they are independent of is the National Curriculum.

Harrow Private Prep Schools

Prep (Preparatory) schools are those that therefore cater for students up to the age of 13 to ‘prepare’ learners for school entrance to the public (expensive and exclusive schools for 13-18-year-olds) and independent secondary schools.

London Prep School Admissions

As each private school manages its own admission procedures, these, therefore, vary greatly. Most private schools are however academically selective and administer some kind of assessment.

For children, up to 7, a prep school would therefore usually ‘assess’ prospective students through an interview and a taster day at the school. There are however schools the make use of 7+ formal assessments.

Harrow Private Secondary Schools

These schools cater for children between 11 / 13 to 16 and often has a Sixth Form within the school for children 16-18. Many of these private schools are members of the Independent Schools Council (ISC). This is a non-profit organisation representing about 80% independent schools in the UK (in 2011).

The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) inspect independent schools that belong to the ISC. This, according to a framework agreed upon between the various assessment bodies including the DfE and Ofsted.

The best way to search for school options is however to have a look at the schools in your borough and work from there. You can then find the Website and Admissions pages for these schools either through the below links or by going to our various pages like:

As each private school manages its own admission procedures, these therefore vary greatly. Most private schools are however academically selective and even those that don’t, require an interview to see whether your child would fit into their particular school environment.

Various forms of assessment can be used either at 11+ or 13+ for academically selective schools. These may include Maths, English, Verbal Reasoning, Non-verbal Reasoning and also exams on various other subjects. The best would, however, be to check the Admissions page of your preferred schools.
