Assessment Day

For 13+ entry girls sit the ISEB Common Entrance exams. The exams take place mid-January and girls are tested in English, Mathematics and Science ( The first step is to register your daughter with Queen Anne's to take part in the assessment day. 

Once confirmed by the Admissions Team, registration with the ISEB is done via your daughter’s school and where this is not possible it remains the responsibility of parents. In addition to the Common Entrance exams girls sit papers in Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning (CEM). Girls will also be invited to interview with the Head or a Deputy Head at a mutually convenient time and a reference will be requested from their current school.

The exams can be sat at Queen Anne’s School or your daughter’s school if it is a registered centre with the ISEB. Scholarships in Art, Drama, Music and Sport will be assessed at our Specialist Scholarship Days in January. Academic Scholarships will be considered on the examination results from both ISEB and CEM.

13+ Post Assessment

We write to those who have sat the ISEB Common Entrance exams by the end of January to let you know whether your daughter has been offered a place at Queen Anne’s School including the results of any Scholarship or Bursary applications.
