11+ Entry Assessment

External candidates for Year 7 take an entrance examination, sitting written papers in Maths and English, as well as a computer-adaptive verbal and non-verbal reasoning assessment. Every candidate will also have a one-to-one interview with a Senior member of teaching staff.

Once offers are made in February, we will invite offer holders to Eltham College for a morning or afternoon of lessons, which will give them an insight into what it is like to be a student here.

Students who are accepted for entry to Year 7 are able to proceed through to the Sixth Form without the need for further assessment. However all students wishing to study A levels are required to meet the minimum entry of six GCSE subjects at grade 7 or higher.
