St George’s Entrance Assessments

Entrance Assessments for Autumn Term entry 2022

Entrance assessments for all year groups, except P1 and S1, usually take place at St George's during a normal school day by contacting the admissions department. As part of our Covid precautions, we are currently running online remote assessments. 

For overseas applicants or those based some distance from Edinburgh, we can send out entrance papers to be administered in the applicant's current school or at home.

There are set dates in Edinburgh schools for P1 and S1 entrance assessments. Plans for the January 2022 group entrance assessments will be available at the start of the New Year. We will follow Covid guidelines at this time and assessments will either be run at school or remotely online.
