Senior School Admissions

Senior School Admissions

Channing School is a member of The London 11+ Consortium and follows its Agreed Code of Practice. Candidates for Year 7 entry sit the London 11+ Consortium entrance examination in January, prior to entry in September the same year.

Candidates are invited to attend an interview and a reference is requested from the candidate’s school. Our policy is to offer places on the basis of the whole picture created by the examination result, the interview performance and the school reference. We look very carefully at all three aspects to gauge a candidate’s potential.
