Admissions / 13+ Entry

Every year approximately 176 boys join St Paul’s School in Year 9. Almost half of these have previously attended St Paul's Juniors, the other half come from a wide range of schools. For boys joining from other schools, the registration and selection process begins in Year 5.

We welcome applicants from state primary schools. In Year 7, you can apply to join our prep school, St Paul's Juniors, or you can follow our 13+ admissions process and join a prep school near you for Years 7 and 8. 

Families of boys applying for assessment in Year 6 must choose either 11+ entry (Year 7) to St Paul’s Juniors or 13+ entry (Year 9) to St Pauls School. You may not register for both.

The application process for 13+ entry in 2022 has now closed. We will not be accepting any late applications.

Online registration for 13+ entry in 2023 will be open between 1 October 2019 and 14 September 2020.
