When is the Second Stage Entrance Examination?

Why are Wilson’s School,  Sutton Grammar School and Wallington County Grammar School sharing their entrance examinations?

The three schools have agreed to share their Second Stage Entrance Examination. 这对通过择业资格测试的男孩有好处,因为他们只需要参加第二阶段的考试, 每个学校将独立使用考试结果来决定是否有资格被考虑在那里申请一个名额.

除了在入学考试安排上的合作外,这三所学校目前或计划中没有任何联系. All three schools remain separate and distinct state funded academy schools.

 

What is in the shared Second Stage Entrance Examination?

The second-stage test will consist of two papers as follows:

  • Maths (45 minutes): this will be a standard maths paper.

 The tests will not include verbal or non-verbal reasoning, and are not multiple choice.

 

Can I get specimen papers or sample questions for the shared Second Stage Entrance Examination?

No, we do not make sample tests available. The content of the English and Mathematics tests is broadly based on the Key Stage 2 curriculum.

 

What is the pass mark in the Second Stage Entrance Examination?
