St George’s School, Edinburgh, Primary 1 and S1 Entrance Assessments

Applications are invited for entrance assessments to P1 and S1 for entry in August 2020.

Primary 1 Entrance Assessment (play morning) Saturday 11 January

S1 Entrance Assessments Tuesday 21 and 28 January

P1 girls are assessed as a group and enjoy different activities within the P1 classrooms where teachers can observe them as they play.

S1 girls sit formal assessment papers, have an interview with a senior member of teaching staff, and experience a ‘taster’ afternoon of activities and lessons with our pupils so they can get a good feel for the school.

For S1 entry the girls sit papers in Mathematics, English writing and non-verbal/verbal reasoning. Watch our video clip at to find out what to expect on the day.

Entrance assessments for all other year groups can be arranged on an individual basis. We currently have a limited number of spaces for most year groups.
