Entrance Examination Guidance

At Surbiton High School we place a lot of emphasis on ensuring that the entrance examination process is as stress-free as possible for both pupils and parents.

Many pupils have experienced a very challenging time over the course of the past two academic years. It has been an extremely disruptive and unsettling for them in terms of their well-being and as well as their education.

We are aware of the disparity in the breadth of teaching, both in school and remotely, for many pupils and we do not want parents to feel this will add unnecessary additional pressure to their children who will be sitting entrance examinations in the coming months.

To this end, our Senior School Head of English, Emma Leigh, and Head of Maths, Bethany Hart, have created overviews of our Entrance Examination papers to help alleviate concerns and also guide your daughter. There is no expectation that any work is completed, it is purely there to help.

You will find both documents below:

Pupil well-being is at the heart of a Surbiton High School education. Through careful guidance and nourishment, our pupils are able to discover their strengths, celebrate their successes, build life-long relationships and flourish. As part of our remote support to our current pupils, one of our Prep School Deputy Heads of Pastoral, Sally Johnston, created a series of engaging, well-being activity sheets. Each sheet focuses on different aspects of well-being, such as positivity, empathy, reflection and relationships. Should they be of interest, please see below:

Resilience and Perseverance
Responsibility and Independence
Empathy and Compassion
Reflection and Goal Setting
Positive Relationships
