Senior School Admissions

We have now closed for admission to 11+ Entry 2020.

Application Form for 11+ Entry 2021 

The London 11+ Consortium Exam: Friday 10th January 2020

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.

All 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.

Scholarships and Awards

Academic and Music awards are offered in recognition of achievement and potential. Please see our Scholarships Policy:

Academic Scholarships

All candidates who sit the 11+ entrance examination are considered for an academic scholarship. There is no need to make a separate application.
