Taster Days are available at King’s Ely Junior, Senior and Sixth Form. Following registration, students are invited to join King’s Ely for an informal day in the life of a student. For more information about our Taster Days, please contact Admissions.
All registered children are invited to attend an assessment day during the Lent Term prior to September entry. We invite 4-6 pupils in for a day in January.
Assessments are carried out online in verbal, numerical and non-verbal skills. Alongside these tests, children take the Lucid dyslexia screening test. The day will also include an informal interview with the Head, Mr Whymark. Your child will be asked to bring in an item they could discuss with Mr Whymark during the interview.
Children are allocated a buddy for the day and are also invited to attend lessons and activities when not sitting assessments.

For parents of Acremont children, an information evening is held towards the end of the Michaelmas Term prior to September entry to introduce parents to the Year 3 team and deliver information about life at King’s Ely Junior.
Further Parents Information evenings are held in June for all parents who have accepted places for Years 3 and 7 in the following September.
Most recent school reports and an Educational Psychologist’s report may be requested before a visit and assessments.
We advise parents that children can prepare for our online assessments by learning to work quietly on their own, completing homework set by their current school, and by reading and trying to understand all the words in any books they read. Older children should also, wherever possible, be encouraged to try to solve problems by looking things up for themselves.
We do not feel that parents need to subscribe to any commercially available materials or tutoring services in preparation for our Year 7 assessments.
Should you require a mid-term or mid-year start in a particular year group, please contact Admissions to enquire.
Day pupils can stay in school until 17:30, joining prep sessions and after school clubs. Following 17:30, day pupils can join the boarders for tea in the Monastic Barn, returning to Priory House thereafter. Flexi boarding and wraparound care are also available. See fees and charges for flexi boarding and wraparound care costs.
We do not offer scholarships for Year 7 or Year 8 entry. Pupils entering King’s Ely Senior at Year 9 are given the opportunity to apply for scholarships.
Bursary applications are accepted for Year 7 upwards. In exceptional circumstances, applications may be considered for younger pupils.
All Junior pupils attend lunch in the Monastic Barn, where food is provided and inclusive of the fees. They are escorted there by a member of staff. Pupils do not bring packed lunches.
A deposit is payable to secure your child’s place at King’s Ely Junior and when they move to King’s Ely Senior.
Please make Admissions aware of your request and allow a little over two hours for your whole visit.
