The vast majority of the children that leave Junior King’s go on to Year 9 at The King’s School, Canterbury.
13+ Entry at The King’s School, Canterbury
Entry for most pupils is via the Common Entrance Examinations. This is set by the Independent Schools Examination Board. Further information and past papers are available from their website (www.iseb.co.uk). Some pupils will sit the Scholarship Examination.
A few applicants attend schools, in the UK or abroad, that do not follow the Common Entrance syllabus. These pupils sit our own entrance examination in January of the year of entry plus an online aptitude test. This examination is limited to papers in English, Mathematics and Science and is normally taken at King’s.
Our experience is that good results at GCSE and A Level can be obtained by pupils with a wide range of CE entry marks, and therefore we do not follow a narrow and inflexible criterion towards selection. Individual character and circumstance, together with the ability to contribute widely to the extensive range of co-curricular activities, are also taken into consideration.
