Junior Admissions

Your son is unique, and choosing the right school for him is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.

Our admissions process is very straightforward and begins with a chat with our Junior School Admissions Officer, Mrs Tessa Rayment.

 

We are always delighted to welcome visitors to QEH Juniors. All visits offer the opportunity to meet the Head, David Kendall, have a pupil led tour of the school and a chance to chat with current pupils to discover what life is like at the Junior School.

 

We hold Open Mornings throughout the year and during our Summer Term, regular ‘Tours at 10.00’. To sign up please visit our Open Events page or contact Mrs Rayment on 0117 930 3067 or junioradmissions@qehbristol.co.uk.

Entry to QEH Junior School

 

The main points for entry to QEH Juniors are Year 3 and Year 5 with our entry assessments held in the January prior to entry. Boys may be admitted to other year groups during the school year if vacancies exist.

 

Year 3 entry – Our assessments are based on English, maths and non-verbal reasoning. Each test is explained to your son, with examples and opportunities to request help before starting the assessment. Your son will be in school for the morning, and he’ll be able to join us for lunch, should you wish him to do so.

Year 5 entry – Our assessments for Year 5 are based on English comprehension, maths, verbal and non-verbal reasoning. Each test is explained to your son, with examples and opportunities to request help before starting the assessment. Your son will be in school for the day, he will have lunch and breaks with our current pupils.

 

The assessments are informal and your son will be relaxed and enjoy his time meeting the boys and staff.  We will inform you if your son has been successful or unsuccessful in being offered a place as soon as possible after his assessment.

 

No practice test papers are issued by QEH but there are reasoning booklets, such as the ‘Bond’ series, for relevant age-groups.

How to apply

 

If you would like to apply for a place in the Junior School for your son, please complete our online application form and pay a non-refundable fee of £60. Payment of the registration fee should be completed by bank transfer (details provided on the online form). Mrs Rayment will then contact you with details of the assessment.

 

 

To arrange an individual visit to the Junior School, please complete our Arrange A Visit form or contact Mrs Rayment on junioradmissions@qehbristol.co.uk or 0117 930 3067.

Since joining the school, we have been constantly amazed by the support and kindness given by the teachers, staff and other pupils and, above all, by the injection of fun that infiltrates throughout whether they're playing sport, completing a science project and participating in a school play.  No doubt there will be challenges ahead but we're confident the school will provide the support and guidance that has our sons' best interests at heart.
Michelle, Current Parent
