UK BOARDING SCHOOL PREPARATION
The majority of top UK senior schools will require your child to pass entrance tests as well as be interviewed in order to be considered for admission. There are a few non-selective schools which might consider admission on the basis of references from the previous school and recent school reports plus in some cases an interview, either in person or via Skype.
Entrance tests vary by school and age group. For entry at ages 11 and 13, schools commonly use the Common Entrance Test set by the ISEB. Children sit exams in all the main curriculum subjects, and the tests are marked by the target senior school. Each senior school sets its own pass mark – the more selective (academically) the higher the required score. Not all schools use Common Entrance. Some set their own admissions tests but the standard expected will generally be the same or higher. For children who have been educated outside the UK and/or not prepared for Common Entrance, schools will sometimes use their own tests.
