11+ and 13+: How to choose a senior school and prepare for entrance examinations

The main benefit of attending a British private school lies in the emphasis on character development and the realisation of each child’s full potential.

This is achieved through pastoral care, small class sizes and above all a vast array of co-curricular activities (music, various sports, drama), a fundamental part of education.

This holistic approach to education starts at the 11+ and 13+ admissions process – admissions officers choose candidates who they deem to have the greatest potential to flourish at their school.

The results speak for themselves: 91% of British private school leavers go on to university, with 4% attending Oxbridge and Ivy League universities.

Making the move to senior school was the subject of our recent seminar for parents, held on 15th May 2018 at the Lansdowne Club in Mayfair.

During the evening Kirstie Richards, former Deputy Registrar at Winchester College, explained the main challenges when it comes to choosing a senior school, while Dee Francken, former Head of North London Collegiate Junior School, gave practical advice on how to prepare for 11+ and 13+ examinations.
