Joining the Junior School 8+ and 9+

Pupils can join the MCS Junior School at 8+ (Year 4) and 9+ (Year 5).

All candidates sit an entrance examination in the January preceding entry in September.

In our exams, we look carefully for potential, not simply current attainment. We take a keen interest in the school reference, the wider interests of the applicant, and any other relevant information. Tests and interviews are designed to explore the way in which each child thinks, no special preparation is expected or required. 

Our aim is to make the process as relaxed and enjoyable as possible.

MCS offers a voluntary Assessment Service for candidates looking at entry into the Junior School. 

For admission as a chorister, please visit Magdalen College’s Choir website.
