Entrance Assessments for admission in September 2025 will be held at Badminton on Saturday 16th November 2024. All girls take examinations in English and Mathematics as well as a Cognitive Ability Test. Each girl will also have an interview with a senior member of staff. In addition, references are obtained from the girls’ current school.

Entrance Exams for Applicants Overseas

Overseas applicants will be invited to sit Badminton assessment exams at a number of selected test centres around the world on Saturday 19th October 2024, as we are moving away from UKISET. If overseas candidates have met the initial assessment criteria after the assessments, they will be invited for an interview with a senior member of staff via video conference.


The Entrance Exams will consist of the following tests:

Maths paper
Duration: 45 minutes

English paper
Duration: 30 minutes

Preparation: Created by Badminton School these are based on the Year 8 and Year 9 Curriculum respectively. No preparation is required as we want to assess the pupil’s natural ability.

Cognitive Ability Test
Duration: 90 minutes

Preparation: Known as CAT4, this is a selection of online tests to determine student's abilities and likely academic potential. There are resources online where you can access free sample questions.
