Overwhelming demand leads to six form entry

01 May 2013

This year there has been a record number of applications to sit the 11+ entrance exam.

Over 700 boys from 285 different junior schools sat the exam in January, in the hope of gaining one of the 125 places on offer in Shells, over 50% of which applied for an Assisted Place.

The quality of boys that sat the entrance exam and the number that have consequently accepted places is so impressive that this year there will be a six form entry and over 140 boys starting in September.
