Entrance Examination


All boys who have registered for Grade 8 at Bishops will be invited via email and the Bishops website to sit the Entrance examinations (in English and Mathematics) in March of their Grade 7 year. An examination fee is charged.

Candidates from schools other than Bishops Prep and Western Province Prep School write the exams in the Mallett Centre on the College campus. It is possible for candidates at schools further afield to make special arrangements to write the examinations at their own schools.

On the basis of results obtained here, as well as possible interviews and further reports from the Prep schools, offers of place are made towards the end of May. Parents of successful candidates have to sign an 'Acceptance of Place' form and pay a non-refundable placement fee to secure their son's place in the College Please Click Here for current placement fee information.

Application to Grade 8 in 2018 is open. Details regarding the Bishops Entrance Examination will be made available in December 2016.
