The majority of children join us in Year 7, but children are welcome to join in other year groups as space allows. Children who want to come to Princethorpe sit an entrance examination in the November of the year before they are due to start in September. 

We understand that choosing the right school for your child is an important decision. This is why we encourage prospective pupils and their parents to visit us both formally and informally to get a true flavour of the school before registering to take the entrance examinations in November.

Competition for places is high, as are standards, but the school also looks for young people who will contribute to the wider life of the school. In recent years we have been considerably oversubscribed.

Entrance Examinations Day for September 2025 entry will take place on Saturday 9 November 2024 from 9.30am to 3.30pm. The deadline for registrations, scholarship and bursary applications is Friday 27 September 2024, to facilitate the seeking of references from the candidate’s current school. The results of the Entrance Exams will be published on Thursday 28 November 2024, when the decision is also shared with the candidate’s current school.

" We definitely made the right choice of school and are very grateful that you gave her a place. The main reason we initially fell in love with the school was hearing about the 'ethos' and the pastoral care. At the time I said to others that all schools talk about these things but yours was the only school where I really believed it. My instincts were right!"
