Mayfield Entrance Assessments

Each candidate will be asked to complete 3 x 45 minute papers which will consist of a General Paper, designed to test the student's ability to think critically, logically and creatively and write coherently; followed by two subject papers from a choice of the following A level subjects: Biology, Chemistry, English, Mathematics, French, Geography, German, History, Latin and Greek (one paper covering both - candidates can choose to do one or the other, or both sections), Physics, Religious Studies and Spanish.

The School will determine the offer of a place  on the basis of results from the papers outlined above, an interview with the Headmaster and Head of Sixth Form, and the confidential reference and progress report provided by her current school. 

Assessments for 2024 entry will be held on 11th November 2023 and offer letters will be sent out by Christmas. If the School makes a formal offer of a place and the parents choose to accept it, they will be required to complete an Acceptance Form and return it with a deposit within a fixed period of time in order to secure the place.
