How to apply at 11+

Co-educational from nursery to Year 8, Eagle House adds a new class in Year 7 each year, primarily for boys and girls whose current schools finish at Year 6 and who have an offer, a place on the waiting-list or who are registering for the LAR1 or LAR2 route at Wellington College.  Many Year 7 and 8 children choose to be flexi- or weekly-boarders.  We also have a few full boarders on a bi-weekly basis.

Eagle House students make regular use of the Wellington facilities, share some sports coaches and interact from time to time with current Wellington students.  Spending Years 7 & 8 in the prep environment allows us to prepare the children both academically and pastorally for their Year 9 start at Wellington.  The transition is then natural and easy and the children will start Wellington with around 30 firm friends dotted around all the Wellington houses.

Further details

The application process for Eagle House is completely separate to that of Wellington College.  We suggest a visit to Eagle House at some stage in Year 5 or 6 and registration can be completed after your visit.  Priority for Year 7 places at Eagle House will be given to those with confirmed Wellington places in the Lent Term of Year 6.  There is no further testing, but we do suggest a taster day at Eagle House at some stage during Year 6.
