Applying to Stamford School

Year 7 Entry

Boys joining in Year 7 will sit our Entrance Examinations. These consist of computerised, multiple choice English and maths tests, a piece of creative writing and an informal interview. All applications will be supported by a reference from your son’s current school which we will request.

Entry into Years 8, 9 and 10

Boys will be invited to sit the Entrance Examination during their visit, your son will complete his Entrance Assessments, have an interview with his prospective Head of Year as well as experience some lessons.  All applications will be supported by a reference from your son’s current school which we will request.

Should your son be sitting his Common Entrance Examinations at his current Prep School we will still invite him in to spend the day with us so he can complete our Entrance Examinations, have an interview with Head of Year 9 as well as experience some lessons.  All applications will be supported by a reference from your son’s current school which we will request.

Boarding is popular across all year groups. We have three boarding houses:

  • Byard for Years 7-9
  • St Paul’s for Years 10-11
  • Browne House for Sixth Form

Boarding tasters are available to coincide with your son’s Taster Day.

Entry in Sixth Form

Boys joining in Year 12 will be invited to school for a Taster Day. During the day, they will have an interview with a senior member of staff and attend lessons in the subjects they favour for A Level. We will ask the students’ schools to provide their predicted GCSE grades, anytime from January onwards, depending upon when the mocks take place. Conditional offers are made based upon these predictions, provided they meet the requisite 5 Grade 6’s or above. Conditional offers become firm offers on results day.

Scholarships

If your son is applying for a Scholarship, there will be additional assessments around this time.
