Hi - the grammar schools usually have year 7 entry and have already had their entrance exams - don't think there are many boys only but might be wrong :roll:

Re Independents - yes they have their exams in Jan / Feb and often taken in year 9. Have you spotted any yourself that you are interested in?


edit: in berks I can only find Eton and the Oratory. maybe neighbouring counties have some?

Try the websites of Reading School (boys' grammar) which does select for Year 9 entry although I'm not sure when and Reading Blue Coats (boys' independent) which may have some places for Year 9 entry.

Good Luck

Many thanks for the replies . I think I will go for the Independent schools. I have gone through some websites but I am not sure whether there is any Test fees I have to pay for the examination as I will be applying for 2 or more schools. So if there is any test fees is it a big amount ? So if my DS got in more than a school is he allowed select one and reject the other school ?

there are often test and registration fees payable if you are taking an exam / having interviews. These are often not refundable if you do not take up the place. Obviously you can take as many exams as you wish but will pay a fee for each. I think the schools really only want you to take exams for schools you are seriously considering.

You are looking for boys only? Day or boarding?

On each school's website under admissions it will tell you what the registration fee is. Must say I can't think of any that takes boys and is day only
