11+ / 13+ Choices

Our Summer Fair takes returns on Tuesday 21st May to The Hurlingham Club in London.

The complete guide to 11+ and 13+ independent school options for London parents, who are preparing for entry to senior schools.

  • Meet the leading London independent day schools;
  • Consider education outside the capital, meeting independent schools in commuter belts plus the most prestigious UK boarding schools;
  • Decide whether to introduce your child to boarding at a prep school, or wait until 13+ senior school entry.

In the relaxed surroundings of the Hurlingham Club have those vital, in depth, face-to-face discussions with senior admissions staff and headteachers that are hard to fit around whistle-stop group school tours at Open Days:

  • Join our immersive talks programme, which is designed to answer all the key 11+ and 13+ questions;
  • Discuss your financial plans and find out about bursaries;
  • Have one-to-one conversations with London’s leading educationalists to assess your child’s needs.

Let the Summer Fair help you reflect on your school choices, consider boarding, and plan how you will prepare your child for admissions tests and interviews.
