Joining Latymer
at 11+

Home > Admissions > Joining at 11+

Pupils from a range of primary and preparatory schools sit an 11+ entrance examination in January prior to entering the School in September. Latymer Upper School sets its own papers in English and Mathematics.

Candidates who do well in the exam will be invited back to the School for an interview so that we can get to know them better and assess whether Latymer is the right school for them.

Register by midday on Friday 11 October 2019

All pupils who are registered prior to the deadline will be invited to sit the written examination which covers English and Maths. 

The entrance exam is normally held on a Tuesday in early January, here at Latymer Upper School, Hammersmith. If your child is registered to sit an exam at another school on the same date in January, please ensure that you inform both schools and we will do our best to accommodate you. We do not hold an alternate day at Latymer. We have numerous sessions throughout the exam day and we can usually schedule your child’s exam to allow your child to sit an exam at another school before or after Latymer’s exam.

Interviews are usually scheduled for a Saturday in late January or early February. Interviews include general questions to discover more about the child and their interests.

Offer letters are sent out in mid-February and families have approximately two weeks to accept or refuse Latymer’s offer of admission. Those who accept the offer will be asked to confirm that they have not accepted an offer from another school and to send a non-refundable £1,000 confirmation deposit.

Please give the Admissions Office a call on 020 7993 0063 if you have any questions, and if you would like to book on an open day, please visit this page.
