Entrance exams are held at the school in January every year. The 2025 examinations will be on Monday, 6th January.  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.

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+.

We will be holding a Prospective Parents’ Evening (for parents of 2025 candidates only) on Thursday, 3rd October 2024 and a Tea and Tour for for Prospective Candidates (the boys) on Tuesday, 1st October 2024.  Further details will be available from the Director of Admissions.
