Entry Requirements

Third Form

Most pupils join the School at 13+ in our Third Form (Year 9), having passed Common Entrance exams in the Summer Term before entry. Level 1 papers at Common Entrance are accepted but pupils may be asked to come for a pre-assessment during Year 8. Milton Abbey also welcomes those who have not been prepared for Common Entrance, asking pupils to sit our own entry papers in English and Maths. A satisfactory report from the pupil’s current school will also be required.

Pupils with Special Educational Needs will be asked to come for a pre-assessment with the Head of Learning Support before entry, to make sure that the School can offer them the correct level of support.

Fourth Form

If space is available, it may be possible to join the Fourth Form, following an interview with the Head, the completion of the School’s entrance papers and a satisfactory report from the pupil’s current school. This option is particularly popular for international pupils from countries where school ages differ.

Sixth Form

For entry into the Sixth Form, candidates attend an assessment day where they will be interviewed by the Head, a Housemaster or Housemistress, and the Head of Sixth Form, as well as completing an assessment paper.  Candidates should have a good GCSE pass in any subjects they are intending to take further and a satisfactory report from their current school.
