Peterborough School 11 Plus School Admissions

Children looking to join the School in Year 7 must sit our Entrance Examinations, which take place in the January prior to entry the following September (Due to current Coronavirus restrictions we will be unable to hold these for students looking to join us in Year 7 for September 2021. Instead, these will be replaced with a reference and school assessment data, requested by the Admissions Team from your child's current school). To sit the Examinations, children must be registered by completion and return of a School Application Form, along with the registration fee, which can be paid in cash, cheque or bank transfer.  Please see our fees page for the registration fee and bank details. The School must receive applications by mid-November to allow us to request a reference from the child’s current school.

The Examinations are in English, Mathematics and Reasoning and take place on a Saturday morning. Sample examination papers are available to download further down this page.

There is no set pass mark for the Examinations; we are looking to ensure children will cope with the Senior School curriculum, hence we also request a reference so we can compare performance in the Examinations with levels children are currently working at.

Children who have applied for an Academic Scholarship sit the same papers at the same time and those who achieve the highest combined marks across the papers are offered awards.To apply for a Scholarship, please scroll down this page and select the form you would like to complete. 

Pupils looking for places in Year 7 may also apply for any one of these additional scholarships too:

  • Music Scholarship candidates audition in front of the Head of Music
  • Hannah Warner Art Scholarship candidates take part in a drawing session during which they are individually interviewed by the Head of Art and discuss the work they have brought in
  • Sport Scholarship candidates are interviewed by the Head of Girls’ and Boys' Games. Interviews are based on the Sport Scholarship Application form they have provided in advance
  • Woodard All-rounder Scholarship candidates are interviewed by the Head or Deputy Head, based on the information they have supplied on the Woodard application form and evidence they have submitted in advance

For more information about the Scholarships, please see the Fees, Scholarships and Bursaries page or download the Entry To Year 7 Parents’ Information document. Forms are also available to complete further down this page.
