Assessment & Entrance Exams
Information for main entry points
The entrance examinations at 11+ take place in January each year and candidates are required to spend a full school day at Colfe’s. The morning will consist of assessments in English and Mathematics, followed by lunch and an afternoon of taster lessons in Culture, Arts and STEM subjects.
