There are various pathways into school depending on the school year. Please find more information below or, alternately, if you are an international student please view our international entrance requirements. To book for our next Open Day, please click here.
Entry to Westonbirt is through Common Entrance examinations or our own entry tests. A personal reference will also be requested from the Head of the candidate’s current school. All candidates must attend an interview at Westonbirt School, as part of the admissions procedure.
1. Common Entrance Examination
Candidates being prepared for the Common Entrance Examination will sit these exams for entry into Year 7 (11+) or Year 9 (13+) and these are usually taken at the current prep school.
2. Westonbirt School Entry examinations
For all other candidates, including those joining at 12+ and 14+, admission is by sitting Westonbirt’s own tests in English and Mathematics, together with an age appropriate non-verbal Reasoning test. These are taken either at Westonbirt, at the candidate’s current school or, at another venue agreed with the Director of Admissions.
Westonbirt has a dedicated Learning Support Department and parents of pupils currently receiving learning support should contact the Director of Admissions to arrange for an initial informal assessment in the Autumn term prior to their daughter’s entrance examinations and should provide copies of any educational psychologists reports.
