St John's, A Merchant Taylors' School

 

Joining St John’s

Boys normally join St John's at 3+ in the Nursery or at 4+ in Reception. We also have a smaller intake at 7+ with boys going into Year 3. Other vacancies may occur from time to time in other years and particularly at 11+.

Admission at 3+ and 4+ is by a simple assessment designed to ensure that each boy has the potential to flourish within the environment and culture of St John’s. Boys who join us in the Junior Department of the Prep school at seven are assessed with written tests and an interview.

3+ assessments will be held on the 18th and 19th of October 2017 for entry to the Nursery in  September 2018. There is a maximum of 20 places available.

4+ assessments will be held on the 4th and 5th of January 2018 for entry to Reception in September 2018.

7+ assessments will be held on the 16th of November for entry in September 2018.

Please note registration for 2017 3+ and 7+ assessments is now closed
