All pupils entering Years 7 and 8 and overseas candidates for Years 9 and 10 take age specific papers in English, Maths and Non Verbal Reasoning. UK candidates for Years 9 and 10 also take science, a foreign language (French, German, Latin or Spanish) plus a choice of two humanities papers (Geography, History or Religious Studies). Sample entry papers for entrance into Year 7 are available for Year 7 English and for Year 7 Maths. We do not supply sample papers for other year groups, but all papers are based on normal national curriculum requirements.
UK candidates looking to enter Kingswood Sixth Form will be invited to interview at Kingswood School in early November and offers will be based on their interview, predicted GCSE results and current school reports. International students looking to enter Kingswood Sixth Form will take entrance papers in the three subjects they would like to study for A Level plus, if their first language is not English, an appropriate English language paper.
For UK candidates, entrance exams are generally taken at Kingswood or at a prospective pupil's current school. For overseas candidates assessment papers can only be taken under the supervision of a Kingswood Agent or at the offices of the British Council. All such arrangements must be agreed by the Registrar.
