Entry Procedure

Ackworth School Nursery

Our Nursery takes pupils from the age of 2½ to 4 years old. Before a place is offered, we will invite your child to Nursery for an informal assessment to ensure they are Nursery-ready.


Coram House (Junior School)

Entry at 4+ is by informal assessment during a taster session. Entry at 7+ is by interview and an assessment. This will normally involve an assessment 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 assessments 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.


Sixth Form

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

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


International Students

  • Each student is considered individually.
  • Students sit the Ackworth English assessment and a current school report is requested.
  • An interview with the Head, either in person or by Skype
