11+ Admissions



The main point of admission to Queen’s College, London is at 11+, when there is a three-form entry. Applicants come from all over London, from a wide range of both independent prep schools and state primaries. While they are required to meet the same academic standards as other applicants, candidates from Queen’s College Preparatory School follow a different entry procedure. We suggest all applicants attend one of our Open Events before applying. 

Selection Process

Queen's is a member of the London 11+ Consortium and follows its Agreed Code of Practice.

We are a selective school, but not narrowly so. Entry at 11+ is on the basis of an entrance exam (one common exam and mark scheme for all of the Consortium schools), an interview and a reference requested from an applicant's current school. Our policy is to offer places on the basis of the whole picture created by these elements and we look very carefully at all three aspects to gauge a candidate's potential.

Please find below the timeline for 11+ 2024 entry.
