In order to complete the admissions process all pupils will be interviewed and tested and a reference will be requested from the current school.
The process can seem daunting at first, but we aim to make it as smooth and enjoyable as possible! We will keep you regularly updated with where we are in the process, what happens next and how your child is getting on. We hope you will find all necessary information here, but please do email Irenie Manfredi email@example.com or Hannah Clarke firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions at all.
When choosing a school we welcome all parents and prospective pupils to pay a personal visit to Belmont so that they can see the School’s facilities and meet the members of staff and current pupils. There are regular Open Mornings and individual tours can be arranged by telephoning the Admissions Office.
We welcome 10-15 boys and girls into Year 3 to join Belmont each year. They join our current Year 2 children coming up from our Pre-Prep school, Grimsdell. Your child must have reached the age of seven before 1st September in the year of entry and will be in Year 2 when they sit their entrance tests. Our assessments take place in the November prior to entering the school the following September.
You can then register as soon as you’ve shortlisted our school or once your child is in Year 1.
Please note that we do not offer bursary or scholarship awards for 7+ entry. These are awarded at 11+, 13+ and 16+ entry.
We welcome 60-70 boys and girls into Year 7 each year to join our current Year 6 children at Belmont. Your child will be in Year 6 when they sit their entrance exam.
There is a three step entrance assessment (exam, interview and teamwork exercise) which takes place in November prior to entering the school in September of the following year.
For our 11+ computer test we do not provide practice materials but we provide a familiarisation website for parents and children. Please refer to: intuproject.org/CEMSelect/CSFamiliarisation.html
Please note: CEM’s assessment familiarisations are designed for desktop use ONLY. The website uses Adobe Flash which does not run on iOS. Please open on a Windows or Mac OS X computer enabled with Adobe Flash. The familiarisations WILL NOT open on phones and tables as these do not support Adobe Flash. Depending on your browser and settings, you may need to enable Flash content from the tootlbar or browser settings.
Occasionally there are places available in other years – these are called ‘chance vacancies’.
