As members of The London 11+ Consortium all candidates for Year 7 entry in September 2024 will be required to sit the bespoke online Consortium Test.
We have introduced a bespoke Consortium assessment process, for all Consortium schools, which goes beyond testing cognitive ability alone and seeks to discover a child’s potential in creative and critical thinking, analysis, synthesis and problem-solving. This test will be 100 minutes in total and taken in the candidate’s current school, but where this is not possible, provision will be made in all Consortium schools for candidates to sit the test there.
We will be inviting candidates to sit the bespoke Consortium assessment at St Augustine’s Priory on Thursday 30th November 2023. If your daughter’s school is hosting the Consortium test, your daughter is welcome to sit the test at her current school on any of the three Consortium Assessment dates (Thursday 30th November, Monday 4th December or Wednesday 6th December 2023). We will be in touch to confirm these details with parents once they have registered.
Our Selection Day, which includes candidate interviews, a range of activities and a visit to Priory Farm, will take place on Friday 5th January 2024. 11+ Scholarship interviews and assessments will also take place on Selection Day. Please check our Scholarships page for more details.
The Assessment Process
The aim of the process is to identify potential as well as the ability to access the curriculum at the pace at which it is taught. St Augustine’s Priory is looking for academically strong, well-rounded pupils with a genuine interest in education in the broadest sense of the word, with interests that stretch beyond the confines of the academic curriculum. The school has strong traditions in music, drama, art, community activities and sport. There are many extra-curricular activities, all of which are important in developing a well-balanced, confident individual.
We will seek references from the candidate’s current school in all cases.
