Our entrance examination is written by SJF teachers but is similar in structure to the Kent Test. It comprises of three papers:

  • Reasoning (1 hour)
  • English and Mathematics (1 hour)
  • Extended writing (1 hour)

The pass mark will vary year-on-year, with the top 30 students taking the test being offered a starting place in the grammar stream automatically.
