General Entry Assessments for boys aged 11 include written tests in English, mathematics and Verbal Reasoning, together with an informal interview and a report from present school. The English and mathematics papers are largely based upon levels 1 to 4 of the National Curriculum. (Maths and English sample papers for entry to the senior school are available from the Admissions Secretary or online)
HMSG Admissions – Girls, 11-18: Day and Boarding
Contact Haberdashers’ Monmouth School for Girls Admissions Registrar – Mrs Karen Stafford-Smith on:
Tel: 01600 711104
Assessments for entry at 11 include an interview, a report from the current school, and written tests in English and mathematics. We try to interview the girls before the written assessments so that they have the opportunity to visit the school and meet a member of staff, whom they may see again on the morning of the written assessments.
We try to ensure the interview is as relaxed as possible, giving girls the chance to talk about the things they enjoy and are involved in. During the interview they are asked to read an unseen passage out loud. The written assessments in mathematics and English are based on the National Curriculum levels 1 to 5.
