Admissions Process

The St John’s admissions process is designed to identify the girls and boys who will thrive in our school, who will enjoy the breadth of opportunity on offer and who will contribute to the rich variety of school life. 

St John’s offers three main points of entry for girls and boys:
11+ Lower Third (Year 7)
13+ Fourth Form (Year 9)
16+ Lower Sixth (Year 12)

Occasionally places might be available for entry into other year groups.

If you are considering St John’s, it is likely that the first step you will take will be to visit the School and find out more about what an education at St John’s will mean for your son or daughter. When you have decided that you wish to proceed with an application, you will register your child (relevant deadlines apply and can be found on the 11+, 13+ and 16+ pages) and the admissions process begins.

We aim to make the process as smooth and straightforward as possible so that prospective candidates have the best possible chance to show us their true ability and personality and so that we can make well-informed decisions about the pupils who will most enjoy life at St John’s.
