Belmont - Admissions


Belmont is a co-educational preparatory school for pupils aged 7 to 13. The main point of entry is at 11+ (Year 7). 

In order to complete the admissions process all pupils will be interviewed and tested, and a reference will be requested from their 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 imanfredi@belmontschool.com, or Ali Whelan awhelan@belmontschool.com or Charlotte Hornung chornung@belmontschool.com if you have any further questions. 

When choosing a school, we encourage all parents and prospective pupils to attend one of our Open Events, so that they can find out more about the school and meet members of staff and current pupils. Individual tours can also be arranged by telephoning the Admissions Office.

Register your child


We welcome 50-60 boys and girls into Year 3 to start at Belmont each year. They join us from our Pre-Prep School, Grimsdell, and continue through Belmont up to Year 8 and join our Senior School, Mill Hill in Year 9.

Occasionally, we will admit additional children in Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6 and Year 8, but our main admission point is Year 7 (11+), where we increase the year group size. 

You can register as soon as you have shortlisted Belmont.

Please note that we offer bursary and scholarship awards for 11+, 13+ and 16+ entry. 

Admission to Year 7 (11+) 

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 (including creative writing) and teamwork) 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 do provide a familiarisation website for parents and children, which can be accessed here. 

Admission to Other Year Groups (Chance Vacancies)

Occasionally there are places available in other years – these are called ‘chance vacancies’.
