Sixth-form School Entry and the 16 Plus Exam
Enrolling your child in a new school for the final two years of their secondary education can be a big change, at a critical time in their pathway toward university. It can also be an enormous opportunity as well, if your child gains a place at a school that is a better fit for their needs and goals.
Occasional Places (Senior Schools)
UK independent schools tend to have defined entry points and clear processes from registration to assessment and interview.
Webinar: How to Use the Summer Holiday to Maximise your University Application

Keystone has over a decade of experience providing tuition to families who wish to send their children to leading UK independent schools for their sixth form studies.
Our team of 51 full-time tutors are highly experienced in guiding students through their preparation for the 16 plus exam. They ensure there are no gaps in a student’s understanding of key topics relevant to the subjects they wish to study, and utilize past papers and detailed feedback extensively. Our tutors are able to tailor their tuition to your child’s specific needs so that they can truly show their potential in the 16 plus.
We have a wealth of experience in assisting students with preparation for competitive London day schools and top UK boarding schools at 16 plus including St. Paul’s Boys School, St Paul’s Girls School, Westminster, King’s Wimbledon College School, Eton, Harrow, Winchester, Wycombe Abbey and many others.
16 plus exams are not standardized and require your child to do well at the specific subject areas they intend to study in their sixth form. Our range of tutors ensure that your child has a specialist suited to their desired subject areas, and who is also familiar with the particular format of the 16 plus at the schools they intend to apply to. This bespoke support will help your child maximise their performance during these challenging and competitive exams.
Our tutors are also familiar with the issues of preparing for a 16 plus exam while also preparing for GCSE or IGCSE exams simultaneously and can ensure your child manages their revision and preparation planning accordingly.
We go the extra mile to match a great tutor with your child and ensure a perfect fit.
When you request a tutor through Keystone we spend a significant amount of time learning about your circumstances. Priding ourselves on how well we know our tutors’ specialist strengths, we ensure that we put forward the very best tutor for your requirements. During the first session the tutor starts by assessing where the child is at, their academic ability, their strengths and perceived weaknesses. Tutors will then devise a programme tailored to the specific circumstances of the student and your target school.
After the first lesson, one of our dedicated client managers will contact you to find out how the lesson went. Our client managers are always available at the end of the phone and they are frequently praised for their efficiency, dedication and responsiveness.
We have a monthly reporting system which is used to update parents on an ongoing basis.
The monthly report details:
• the focus of that month’s tutoring
• the form of assessment used
• the student's achievements and areas for further work
• the focus for the coming month
The regular, rigorous reporting of the tutors we represent is frequently commended by parents.
• Comprehensive tuition covering the subjects which your child will sit papers on in the 16 plus exam
• Test practice and honing of exam technique through the use of past papers
• Familiarisation with the exam format and requirements of the specific schools they are applying to
We have extensive experience in helping students prepare for interviews as part of the 16 plus exam, ensuring that they can demonstrate their interest in and passion for the subjects they intend to study.
