Admission to Sussex House

This website can only give you an idea of what we do at Sussex House. The best way to feel the atmosphere and all that the school has to offer is by arranging a visit. All admission enquiries should be addressed to the Director of Admissions. Boys are accepted from the age of eight and only later if there is a place available. They may be registered at any age, but the closing date for registration is the end of October prior to September entry. There is a registration fee of £200.

All prospective parents are met by the Headmaster and are individually shown round the school.

Entrance exams are held at the school in January every year. The boys spend a half day at the school, where they have an interview and take a written exam, which shows us their potential. The examination includes English, Mathematics and Verbal Reasoning. A confidential report from the boy’s present school is requested and taken into consideration. On separate occasions both the boys and parents have an opportunity to see the school in action.

A good standard of English is required in the Entry Test to Sussex House. There is no specific provision for the teaching of English as a second language – however, individual tuition is provided where necessary.

There are 36 places available at 8+.
