Admissions Quick Guide

Admissions Quick Guide for September 2023 entry

Parents/Carers and children should attend one of the Presentation Evenings and read all the information that is on the school website to help you decide whether Northampton School is the right school for your child. Click here to book a place at one of our Presentation Evenings.

The school will admit 10% of its total entry on aptitude for Sport and Performing Arts (Dance/Drama/Music). There are optional tests for these areas in January. Your child does not have to do these tests if you feel they do not have an aptitude (natural ability) in these areas and it will not harm their application to the school if they do not. Please read the information that relates specifically to these tests on the 'Optional Aptitude Tests' link or click here.

Apply to us using the link on our website to complete the Northampton School Application Form. You must do this by midnight on Sunday 22nd January 2023.

We will email you about our Common Ability Test which takes place on Saturday 28th January 2023 which all applicants* to the school have to take. You will receive this email after the closing date of 22nd January and by the end of Wednesday 25th January at the latest with all the information related to this.

All admissions events for Northampton School will be held at the Northampton School for Boys site. Please ensure that you read carefully any information that we send to you with regard to visiting the school site for any of the admissions events.

We will write to you on 1st March 2023 to let you know the outcome of your application.

*Please note that boys who have already sat the Common Ability Test on 22nd November 2022 as part of their application to Northampton School for Boys will not need/be able to sit the test again.
