We welcome applications from pupils to join Latymer Upper School in Year 7. Children from a range of primary and preparatory schools sit the exam each year.
Registration for Year 7 entry in 2022 is now closed. For entry in September 2023, registrations will open in June 2022. Open Days take place in the Autumn Term, bookings will open in the Summer Term 2022, for more information please click below.
For entry in September 2023, children should be in Year 6 at the time of the entrance exam scheduled to take place on Tuesday 10 January 2023 at Latymer Upper School, Hammersmith.
All pupils registered prior to the deadline (please refer to the timetable below) will be invited to take the exam which covers English and Mathematics.
Latymer Upper School sets its own papers in English and Mathematics; sample papers are available via the button below, these are indicative of the style of questions and we do not provide answers or a mark scheme. There is one Maths paper (60 minutes) and two papers for English – comprehension/multiple choice (35 minutes) and creative writing (45 minutes) with a 20 minute break after the Maths paper. If your child is eligible for learning support adjustments, you will be required to submit supporting documents after registration. 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.
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 note that only verbal feedback on your child’s exam performance can be given, and parents requesting it will only be provided (by telephone) with an idea of how their child performed in any paper (low, average, above average).
For assistance with school fees, bursary applicants must first meet the same academic requirements for entry to the School as other pupils. 11+ and 16+ bursaries are means-tested and based on family financial circumstances. They vary in amount from 25% to 100% of fees. More information is available here.
