Entrance Assessments

Admissions > Entrance Assessments


There are no formal assessments; however we will request a school report and educational information from your child’s previous school prior to entry.

We would encourage new pupils to visit prior to starting.

Prep School

For Year 3, entrance is based on a satisfactory taster day at the Prep School. This can be arranged on an individual basis or as part of our main assessment day in January each year. Gresham’s Pre-Prep pupils are invited to several Prep School taster events during Year 2. For Years 4 to 8, entrance assessments are in Maths and English. Sample papers are not provided – our tests are very similar to widely available age-appropriate standardised assessments.

Prep School entrance assessments for September 2022 took place on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd January 2022. Applications for places after this date are considered on an individual basis according to availability.
