What Does the Westminster Under School 7+ Assessment Involve?

At Westminster Under, they look for potential in boys who have a natural ability and will therefore thrive. All boys will sit bespoke adaptive electronic tests in mathematics, English, verbal reasoning, and non-verbal reasoning. At Mentor, we offer 7 Plus mock papers, to allow your child to familiarise themselves with the tests and develop their confidence.


The English assessment will examine comprehension and writing skills, including spelling, punctuation, and grammar. It will also test the fluency of your child’s reading and oral skills.


Within the maths exam, your child will be assessed on their problem-solving abilities and general arithmetic skills. This will include times tables knowledge.

Reasoning Assessment

There will be tests in verbal and non-verbal reasoning, which will test thinking skills. No preparation will be needed for the reasoning, although becoming familiar with this type of paper can increase confidence.

Open Events at Eaton Square for the 7+

Based on the results of the written papers, the school will invite approximately 50 boys back to participate in some classroom activities and an interview. This usually takes place in January. 

The boys will enjoy a session that’s similar to a typical school morning, and will be settled in with games before starting their assessment. They will be interviewed by The Master and a member of the Senior Management Team, where they will be encouraged to talk about their interests and enthusiasms.

At the end of January, emails are sent to all applicants advising them of the outcome of the assessments.
