KTJ Admissions Process Guide

Submitting an Application

Please submit your application by completing the online form. This can be found under the Admissions section on our website and the 'How to Apply' section will provide you with further details.


Academic excellence is placed at the heart of what we do. We can therefore only make offers to students who we believe will be sufficiently able to access the curriculum and get the most out of their time at KTJ.

Primary School

The child is given a full tour of the school, in particular the classroom that they will be enrolled into. As well as ensuring that each child feels comfortable and welcomed before the more formal part of the admissions process, the tour allows us to informally assess the student’s ability to communicate clearly in English at a level that is appropriate for their chronological age.

  1. Key Stage 1 and Early Years students will have an informal assessment with the Admissions Executive and will be asked to produce a piece of writing, where appropriate.
  2. Key Stage 2 students will be asked to sit for a CAT 4 assessment, which covers Maths, English and Non-verbal reasoning and will be asked to produce a piece of writing.

Secondary Schools

Forms 1 – 4: All students are offered a tour of the school. We will then ask the student to sit for our online assessments which cover English, mathematics and non-verbal reasoning. They take approximately 2 hours to complete and are done in the Registrar’s office. Depending on the student’s level of English, we will do a follow up 30 minute written assignment and/or a verbal conversation with a member of our English Additional Language (EAL) team for 10 minutes. This will allow us to place students appropriately into the correct English language class. All of this is taken into consideration alongside the student’s previous school report.

A levels / Sixth Form: All students are offered a tour of the school. For our Sixth Form programme, we look at the students forecast or actual IGCSE or SPM results and previous school reports to come to a decision regarding admission. No online tests are necessary for Sixth Form students.

Please note that you will need to make a prior appointment to come in to take the assessment; this can be arranged by emailing [email protected]
