I think we need to know which school(s) to provide a meaningful answer, but in my limited experience I would expect them to be already working at level 5 or above in some areas for a test in January of Y5.

Hi agathachristie

My DS is at Whitgift although he did the entrance exam in Year 6. He was high level 5 in year 6 so I don't think they would expect more than low level 5 in Year 5. They have sample papers on their website to give you an idea. Other interests are really important though, sport, music etc etc-they really like boys who are active & have plenty to talk about. We couldn't be more pleased with the school & our DS is really happy.

Good luck!

Hi Estelle, thank you for your reply. Have looked around the school and loved it, DS is also quite keen ... Just wondered what the competition is like at the 10+ stage. Have looked at their sample papers... Thanks

Hi agathachristie

They only take 2 classes of boys on for year 6 but I think applications are much lower so competition not as great as at 11+. Two of my friends' DSs started in Year 6 & it's a great introduction for the boys as there are only a few of them plus they get a fantastic bonding trip to Lake Garda. Once the other boys join in Year 7 they are all mixed up to there is no cliqueyness. HTH

Hi agathachristie

My DS is in Year 10 so just starting GCSEs. He is very happy at school, works very hard and is busy all the time with sport, music and Duke of Edinburgh award as well as exchange visits and other trips. It's a school for boys who enjoy living life to the full and making the most of every opportunity. If you have specific questions, you are welcome to PM me.
