On-line Registration for 2017 entry has now closed.
The Entrance Examination
Last year, around 1100 candidates sat the exam. We interviewed just over 400 following the exam. Only if your child is successful in the entrance examination can they be considered for a Means-tested Bursary or Music Scholarship.
The Entrance Exam consists of two papers – English and Maths. There are two parts to the English exam: Part 1 consists of multiple choice questions about an extract from a piece of non-fiction. The questions test knowledge and understanding of the passage as well as awareness of grammatical and literary terminology.
Part 2 requires candidates to complete a short piece of expressive handwriting. Spelling, grammar, handwriting and punctuation will be taken into account.
The Maths paper consists of two parts: Section A is made up of multiple choice questions and Section B contains short and multi-part questions. The questions will cover a range of topics all of which are part of the National Curriculum up to KS2.
Sample papers will be sent to parents when children are registered. These are intended as guidance only and the format of the papers may change year on year.
Learning Support Requirements
If your child has any Learning Support requirements, please provide the relevant additional information with the registration form. All requests are passed to our Academic Mentoring team for assessment and you will be advised of any allowances before the entrance exam.
Please note that Latymer Upper School enrols only students who are UK or EU Nationals, or who can demonstrate that they are dependents of people legally entitled to live in the UK for the duration of their education here. The School does not sponsor Tier 4 student visa applications.
