Introduction

 

Abercorn School is an independent, co-educational school set across 3 locations in and around Marylebone. The school was opened in 1987 by Andrea Greystoke and is a member of IAPS, the Independent Association of Preparatory Schools.

 

The Year 7 curriculum is taught by the following departments: English, Maths, Arts, Humanities, Languages, Sports and STEM. Pupils regularly take part in a variety of after class activities and thus enhance their skills in chess, computer coding, taekwondo, football, hockey, athletics and science.

 

The inclusive and welcoming school environment enables children to grow into  global citizens, whilst remaining firmly grounded in self-respect and dignity. Through effective collaboration with parents, the school produces well-rounded young adults who proceed to use their knowledge, skills and talents for the greater good.

The Abercorn School 11+ entrance examination consists of the following papers:

 

  • English writing (essay)
  • Verbal Reasoning
  • Non-Verbal Reasoning

 

The English paper examines writing skills, including spelling and punctuation. Marks will be awarded for good use of imagination, creativity, form, purpose, organisation, cohesion and sentence structure.

 

The Verbal Reasoning paper is primarily designed to test and assess your child’s logical thinking, use of English language and vocabulary. 

 

The Non-Verbal Reasoning paper measures their ability to understand, interpret and problem-solve, testing logic and intelligence rather than knowledge.
