St Joseph's College, Reading Admissions Process

Entry into Year 7 at St Joseph's College is dependent upon an interview with a member of the senior leadership team, passing an entrance assessment and a satisfactory reference and report from the child's current school. Interviews are ususally held during September of Year 6 and the entrance assessment is usually taken in January of Year 6.

BOFA St Joseph's College Mock Tests

Our BOFA® St Joseph's College Mock Tests have been designed and created specifically to replicate the St Joseph's College entrance exam situation in order to help pupils familiarise themselves with the format and structure of the St Joseph's College exam. Our Mock Tests follow the same three stage learning process as the BOFA® 11+ site (test, practice, retest) but the emphasis is on the exam preparation rather than the learning element. Our Mock Tests are sold in packs of 3 as we believe 3 is the minimum number of tests a pupil will need to complete to become comfortable with the format and style of the exam. You can purchase Mock Tests for the St Joseph's College entrance exam from our Mock Test Shop.

As well as offering these specific Mock Tests we also offer an online adaptive learning platform on a subscription basis for long term support and exam preparation. Our 11+ subscription site is our unique online learning platform which covers material from 8+ through to 12+, designed to assist pupils in their learning and understanding of syllabus content in preparation for the 11+ exam. All our tests follow our three stage learning process of initial test, followed by tailored teaching and learning before a retest. Although referred to as the 11+ subscription site, a subscription gives you access to all the subscription site material and is therefore suitable for pupils aged 7 to 11, in College years 3 to 6. You can purchase a recurring monthly subscription for £9.50 a month, which can be cancelled at any time, or you can take out a fixed term 3, 6, 9, or 12 month subscription with a one-off payment, prices of which can be found in our 11+ shop.
