ENTRANCE ASSESSMENT AND SCHOLARSHIPS 2021
For 11+ and 13+ Entry
11+ and 13+ Entrance Assessment Day
Monday 25th January
All pupils looking to join our Form 1 (Year 7) or Form 3 (Year 9) are encouraged to attend our Entrance Assessment Day. Usually this day would be held on-campus, and would include sitting tests as well as joining in with fun team building activities. This year, this will be in the form of an online assessment paper.
We are a non-selective school and we want to make the test as relaxed as possible. The assessment is simply designed to help us establish the academic ability and level of each child so that we can put them into the right groups when they join. There is no pass or fail mark and you cannot prepare for this sort of test. The Entrance Day is also part of the 11+ & 13+ Academic Scholarship application process.
For Sixth Form entry, pupils will be invited to attend an online interview at a date and time that suits them.

Since my daughter has joined Shebbear we have seen the most incredible change in her confidence. The teachers encourage the pupils to ‘be themselves’, give everything a go and not to worry about making mistakes - and as a result she has thrown herself into every aspect of school life. She has definitely had a spark ignited in her and it is wonderful to see.
