Year 7 Entry

Year 7 Entry (Age 11+)

Year 7 entry is another point at which pupils may join Edge Grove, for the final two years at prep school in preparation for 13+ entry to senior schools.

At Edge Grove we believe that it is in Years 7 and 8 where a Prep school education really comes together. During these two years we prepare children for their senior school, teaching in small classes with more individual attention. We provide support to make up any knowledge shortfall in subjects such as languages; and prepare the children for pre-tests, exams and interview practice.

Excellent results are achieved each year and a large proportion of our pupils leave with scholarships to their future school.

What happens at the 11+ Assessment?

The 11+ Assessment involves an online assessment testing VR and NVR skills. There is also some creative writing and a short interview. For the remainder of the day the children join lessons in Year 6 so they can experience a ‘taster day’ at Edge Grove and we can get to know your child better.


Scholarships may be available for pupils at Year 7 entry.

We offer scholarships in the following areas:


If you would like your child to attend the 11+ Assessment please contact Admissions ( to discuss the process further. We will need to see your child’s most recent school report and will also contact their current school for confidential feedback.
