7+ Entry

Selection for entry at 7 is by:

(a) an informal interview
(b) assessment in English and mathematics
(c) assessment of potential.

A good standard of reading and familiarity with the basic rules of number are expected.  The papers will be largely based upon level 2 of the National Curriculum.  Reports on candidates will also be sought from their present school.  The Head of the Grange and Inglefield House will be pleased to discuss the entry procedure with parents in more detail.  Assessments are conducted at The Grange and Inglefield House in an informal way and the candidates are given plenty of guidance and encouragement throughout the assessment.
