What is Common Entrance?
Common Entrance is the name for a set of examinations taken by boys and girls for entrance to senior independent schools at 11+ or 13+. The syllabuses are devised by the Independent Schools Examinations Board which is composed of Heads from the three Associations which represent the leading independent schools in the country: The Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference, The Girls' Schools Association and The Independent Association of Prep Schools. The papers are set by examiners appointed by the Board, but the answers are marked by the senior school for which a candidate is entered.
Candidates may normally be entered for Common Entrance only if they have been offered a place at a senior school subject to their passing the examinations
What is a Scholarship?
A scholarship is a means of financial assistance provided by another body or institution so that your child can pursue a line of education that may not be available to them under normal circumstances.
More than a fifth of all pupils at independent schools get some form of financial assistance with fees. Scholarships are generally awarded to pupils for academic, musical or artistic merit and normally do not take financial need into account.
A scholarship can be awarded to any pupil based entirely on their performance within a particular subject or field of education and irrespective of background, class or financial stability.
Scholarships are awarded normally to those pupils who show exceptional talent or intelligence in a particular area. This may be music or the arts or literature or indeed sport and there needs to be a financial support to enable these pupils to pursue further qualifications in private or independent school level.
