Is your child aged 9 or 10?
Are you considering sending your child to a top British boarding school for age 11+ entry in 2018 or age 13+ entry in 2020?
2017 deadlines for registering your child for 11+ and 13+ entry to a top UK boarding school are fast approaching. Don’t be one of the many parents who kick themselves for missing important dates in the school admissions process only to find that the lists are closed.
The following schools have JUNE 2017 deadlines to register your child for entry at age 13 in 2020:
For girls, many of the most prestigious boarding schools, such as Downe House and Wycombe Abbey have imminent deadlines for age 11 entry in 2018.
If you are aiming to get your child into one of the UK’s leading independent schools over the next few years you need to start the process as soon as possible. It is essential to plan ahead to make sure that your child has the best possible chance of gaining entry to the school of your choice.
Many parents of bright children think that their academic brilliance alone will earn them a place in a highly sought after and prestigious school. There is a widespread myth that family connections, money and status can bypass standard registration procedures but this is simply not true in the vast majority of cases.
Registration is only the first step in the process. Once your child’s name is ‘on the list’ he or she will be considered for entry in accordance with the school’s admissions procedures. Unfortunately these vary significantly from school to school, so it is vital to be aware of the next steps.
A simplified timeline for age 13 (Year 9) entry in 2020 might look like this*
* Please note that this applies mainly to children educated in UK prep schools and applications from overseas may be managed differently. Contact the school or one of our consultants for details.
For 11+ entry the timescales are usually shorter, although some schools, such as Benenden, recommend registration up to three years ahead.
Entrance exams for Year 7 (11+) entry in September 2018 are held between September 2017 and February 2018. Again, each school has its own procedure so contact us or the school for details if you are unsure.
Of course registration is only the first step in the process of selecting a school for your child.
