St Augustine’s Priory is an independent Catholic day school in Ealing, London for 3 to 18-year-old girls. The school was founded in 1634 in Paris but came over to England in 1911 when the Augustinian Canonesses Regular of the Lateran moved here. Today, the school cares for approximately 479 students although the school has the capacity to care for roughly 513 students.

The school offers great facilities like an astroturf, chapel, playground, netball court, refectories, garden, meadow, field and halls. Further, their expansive co-curricular programme for Seniors and Sixth Formers includes cooking, photography, tennis, LAMDA, Python programming, fencing, orchestra, rugby, roller skating, tea appreciation, classical Greek and crochet/knitting clubs.

In 2022, the school achieved some amazing academic results, with 69% of all grades achieved at GCSE being grades 7 or above and 80% of all grades achieved at A Level being A*-B. 

They were last inspected by the ISI (Independent Schools Inspectorate) in 2021 which scored the school ‘excellent’ in multiple categories and were reviewed by the Good Schools Guide in 2020 which wrote that they were “wowed” by the school and described it as a “hidden gem”.

There is a Year 7 entry open morning on 23 September 2023 but if you cannot make this date they also offer private tours from 9.00 – 9.15am on weekday mornings, online Zoom calls with their Registrar Mrs Savic, and small group tours.

As St Augustine’s Priory is part of the London 11+ Consortium, the school has a selective entry process which involves selecting new pupils based on examination results (either the November/December 2023 entry examination or classroom assessment), an interview at the school following the exams and references from your child’s current school or educational setting.

Priority is given to siblings but siblings will still have to be successful in the above assessments to be considered.

What is the entrance 11 Plus (11+) exam format for St Augustine’s Priory?

The entrance exam is 100 minutes long and it is split into multiple five distinct sections: 

  • Maths – (20 minutes) based on the National Curriculum for Year 5, will not test anything on the Year 6 curriculum
  • Non-verbal reasoning – (10 minutes) assessment of the candidate’s ability to identify patterns & think logically
  • English comprehension – (20 minutes) pieces of fiction which are written especially for the Consortium exams, no extended writing is required
  • Verbal reasoning – (10 minutes) assessment of a candidate’s ability to identify the correct use of standard English in context 
  • Break – (30 minutes) 
  • Puzzles & problem-solving – (15 minutes) tests the ability of candidates to use words & numbers to solve multi-step problems 
  • Creative comprehension – (25 minutes) candidates have to use information from a variety of different sources to answer questions

The first part of the test, up to the break, is adaptive. This means the questions are tailored to the child’s performance. The second part is non-adaptive, meaning all the candidates will have the same questions. The English comprehension passage will also be the same for all candidates, but the questions will be adaptive.
