Most of the schools will need to meet the prospective pupils. Sometimes this is a formal interview, for others it is an informal visit, or a day spent at the school. Almost all will want to see copies of previous school reports. Some of the schools require the prospective pupil to sit an entrance exam. The entrance exams could be any combination of English, Maths, Verbal Reasoning and Non Verbal Reasoning.
