and is subject to the College’s Standard Terms and Conditions.

The Interview

Candidates who show promise in the written papers are invited to attend for an interview shortly after the examination. Our aim is to provide a friendly atmosphere for the interview during which the candidate will be allowed the opportunity to give further evidence of his academic strengths and some indication of interests and abilities with which he might make a contribution to the general life of the College.

Extra Time in Entrance Examinations

Additional time is available for boys who have an Educational Psychologist’s report that shows they have below average scores for speed of cognitive processing. Use of a computer is available for boys for whom it is the normal way of working and where it is appropriate to their needs. Please make the Registrar aware of this at the time of application.
