13+ 2019 entry arrangements for Wetherby Senior School

In line with many senior schools, Wetherby Senior will be registering boys in Year 6 for the ISEB pre-test.  We would encourage all parents of boys currently in Year 5 who would like their son to be considered for a 13+ place in September 2019 to contact the school to register as soon as possible.  Registration will close on the last day of our Autumn Term on Friday 9th December 2016.

On the basis of test outcomes, boys will be invited for interview in the Summer and early Autumn Term of 2017, with offers made soon thereafter.  Offers will be provisional on Common Entrance exam results taken in Year 8 in the normal way.

It is our intention to reserve a small number of 13+ places for competitive selection for boys in Years 7 and 8 who for whatever reason may have missed out on the ISEB test, may have flourished later in their school career, or whose senior school plans may have changed in the meantime.  In the future I would urge colleagues to contact the School admissions team if they have a boy at their school who falls into one of these categories.

13+ 2018 entry arrangements

The closing date for registration of those boys who wish to join the School in Year 9 in September 2018 is Friday 28 October 2016.  Boys will sit English and Maths papers this autumn in the same way as they did last year.  Successful applicants will then be asked to interview and offers made.

13+ 2017 entry arrangements (the boys were assessed either on 14/11/15 or 15/03/16)

Parents of boys who have an offer to join Year 9 in September 2017 will be written to this term and asked to commit financially to the School by Friday 30 September 2016.  The number of boys seeking places for 2017 has been very high but we will nonetheless consider occasional place assessment for pupils who will be in Year 8 next year and are applying to the school for the first time.

11+ Entry 2017

Wetherby Senior School seeks to recruit a small cohort of boys for entry into Year 7 in 2017.  The assessment for 11+ in September 2017 will be held at WSS on Friday 20 January 2017 and will consist of a Mathematics paper (non-calculator) and an English paper (comprehension and composition).  The deadline for registration for the assessment is 9 December 2016.
