Your son is unique, and choosing the right school for him is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.
Junior School (Years 3-6)
The main points for entry to QEH Juniors are Year 3 and Year 5. Boys may be admitted to other year groups during the school year if vacancies exist. Please contact the Junior Admissions Officer on 0117 930 3067 for up to date information on available places.
For entry to QEH Juniors in September, assessment weeks are held in the November and February prior. However, individual assessments can be arranged by contacting the Junior School Admissions Office.
Year 3 entry - Our assessments are based on English, maths, verbal and non-verbal reasoning. Each test is explained to your son, with examples and opportunities to request help before starting the assessment. Your son will be in School for the morning, and he will be able to stay for lunch, should you wish him to do so.
Year 5 entry - Our assessments for Year 5 are based on English comprehension, maths, verbal and non-verbal reasoning. Each test is explained to your son, with examples and opportunities to request help before starting the assessment. Your son will be in School for the day and have lunch and breaks.
Interview - Each boy will also be individually interviewed by the Head, Mr David Kendall.
The Assessments are informal and your son will be relaxed and enjoy his time meeting the boys and staff. We will inform you if your son has been successful or unsuccessful in being offered a place as soon as possible after his assessment.
Practice papers - No practice test papers are issued by QEH but there are reasoning booklets, such as the ‘Bond’ series, for relevant age-groups. These are available from W H Smith and similar booksellers.
How to apply – If you would like to apply for a place for your child, please contact the Admissions Office to arrange for an application pack to be sent to you. The application form needs completing and returning together with the registration fee, currently £40. The Junior Schools Admissions Office will then contact you with details of the assessment.
