Entry Procedure

Coram House (Ackworth’s Junior School)

Entry at 4+ is by informal assessment during a taster session. Entry at 7+ is by interview and a test. This will normally involve a test of potential and achievement in the areas of literacy, numeracy and reasoning.

Senior School

Entry at 11+ and 12+ is by school reference, interview (where possible) and tests.
These will involve Mathematics and English tests set by the School and a non verbal reasoning test.

Entry at 13+ and 14+ is as at 11+, though the papers will be appropriate to the age of the child.

Entry at 16+ is by school reference, interview and evidence of satisfactory GCSE grades.

Entrance tests usually take place in January, although individual tests take place throughout the year.
