Prep entry, including 11+

Children joining Mount Kelly in Year 3 and above will be joining the Prep. Whilst there are no written assessments for entry to the Prep below Year 5, as with the Nursery and Pre Prep, we do require that children have a taster day in their relevant year group. We find that, not only does it give our academic staff the opportunity to assess your child in the classroom it also, more importantly, gives your child the reassurance that becoming a Mount Kelly pupil will be busy and exciting.

Children leaving their Prep or Primary School at the end of Year 6 will join Mount Kelly at the Prep for Year 7 and 8 before moving to the College for Year 9. Children will be assessed for entry at this stage and arrangements for these assessments will made for your child early in the application process. The results of these assessments will be used, in conjunction with previous school reports, to plan the ongoing education of your child.

Children applying for entry to the Prep are very welcome to have a tour of the College and meet the Head Master, Mark Semmence, and other members of the academic staff.  All families applying for Year 6 and above will be offered a College tour as a matter of course.

Pupils applying for Years 5, 6 or 7 will have written entrance assessments in Maths and English.
