The College

The admissions process into Upper Third (11+) starts in Year 6. Registration is recommended at least one year prior to entry. Families are encouraged to visit the College to get a flavour of the school, and we also offer a number of Taster Days prior to the College entrance examination for prospective Upper Third/Year 7 pupils.

Pupils entering the College from the Prep are not required to sit the College entrance examination. Entry into the Lower Fourth, Upper Fourth and Lower Fifth is also possible, dependent on availability. Registration will enable an invitation for assessment into these year groups.

Every day at St Bede’s is interesting, challenging and packed with learning.
