Application Form for Senior School

Entry for 11+ September 2022 

This year the London 11+ Consortium has agreed to use the ISEB Common Pre-tests. The online tests should be taken in your daughter’s current school. If this is not possible, your daughter can sit the tests at Channing – date to be confirmed, or at any other London 11+ Consortium school (or another school using the ISEB Common Pre-tests) to which she has applied.

We request a school reference for all applicants and invite all candidates to attend an interview.

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