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.
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.

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.
For the Academic Year 2021/2022 we have capacity to increase our Year 5 and Year 6 classes. (Year 4 and Year 5 currently). We will be testing for these available places on Saturday 27 March 10:00-12 noon. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information and to register your interest.
You can register as soon as you have shortlisted Belmont or once your child is in Year 2.
Please note that we offer bursary and scholarship awards for 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 two-step entrance assessment (exam and interview) 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.
Please note: CEM’s assessments are designed for desktop use. As such, the familiarisation website uses Adobe Flash which does not run on iOS. Please open on a Windows or Mac OS X computer enabled with Adobe Flash Player. Depending on your browser and settings, you may need to enable Flash content from the toolbar or browser settings. The familiarisations will not open on phones and tablets as these devices do not support Adobe Flash Player.
Occasionally there are places available in other years – these are called ‘chance vacancies’.
