Admissions Policy

 

Day pupils

The main ages for entry into the school for day pupils are 4+ (Reception) and 7+ (Year 3). There are sometimes spaces in other year groups and parents are asked to contact Clare Morgan (details below) if they are interested.

 

Assessment at 4+:

Children are assessed informally for entry to the Reception form in the Pre-Prep department when rising four.  This assessment takes place in the November before the year of entry. There is a one-form entry at this level. Subject to their attaining the appropriate academic standard, they progress at the age of seven to the Prep School.

 

Registrations are closed for places in the Reception class (4+) for 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. 

 

Assessment at 7+:

The Prep School has a two-form entry at 7+ and places are available for boys and girls who have not attended the Pre-Prep department. The school is looking for pupils whose abilities are at the national average or above. Assessment at this level takes place in the January before their entry into the school in September. The closing date for entries is December 31st.

 

Choristers (Boarders)

Choristers (boys only) are admitted from the age of seven. They may have attended the Pre-Prep department of St Paul’s Cathedral School or come from another school. Parents are asked to contact the Director of Music, Mr Andrew Carwood, through the Music Department Administrator, Mrs Angela Palotai (tel: 0207 236 6883; email: apalotai@stpaulscathedral.org.uk), to arrange an informal audition in the first instance. If asked to progress to a formal audition, the candidate will be asked to undergo the same academic testing as day pupils. Formal voice trials are held throughout the year.

 

There are places for choristers at 7+, 8+ and sometimes 9+.

 

If successful, a chorister’s tuition fee and music lessons are paid for by the Dean and Chapter of St Paul’s Cathedral. Parents are asked to pay the boarding fee, but assistance with this is available. Please contact the bursar, Mr Martin Kiddle (tel: 020 7248 5156; email bursar@spcs.london.sch.uk) for details.
