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, Tessa Rayment.

 

We are always delighted to welcome visitors to QEH Juniors, to meet the Head, David Kendall and to talk to our pupils to discover what life is like at the Junior School. There will be a chance to ask questions as you look around the school and as far as possible we like to offer individual tours to families.

 

We also regularly host Friday ‘Tours at 10.30’. Please do contact Mrs Rayment on 0117 930 3067 or junioradmissions@qehbristol.co.uk for dates and availability.

Mrs Tessa Rayment Junior School Admissions Officer

Coming into the school, and watching us at work is very important. You will feel the sense of community which makes QEH Juniors so unique, and such a popular choice for parents who want their children to be their best self and love learning.

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 registration 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 contact Mrs Rayment on juniorsadmissions@qehbristol.co.uk or call Tessa on 0117 930 3067.

My boys have loved QEH!  They felt at home so quickly and really enjoyed being able to be themselves with like-minded lads.  The teachers really 'got' them and, although they're very different characters, QEH brought out the best in both of them.
