Before offering a place to any boy wishing to join Davenies in Year 7, we invite them along to a Taster Session. Not only does this allow us to get to know each individual boy better, but it also enables them to experience life in Years 7 and 8 at Davenies first-hand, along with some of the things that the School has to offer.
Our Year 7 Taster Sessions are designed to provide the opportunity for boys currently in Year 6 to visit Davenies and experience the School in action. The session comprises an English and Maths assessment, a group task and a tour with a member of the Senior Leadership Team. Boys will have the chance to visit our outstanding facilities, interact with our current pupils and experience first-hand what life in Years 7 and 8 is like at Davenies.
In addition to the Taster Day, and to further help us understand each boy’s academic profile, we will also ask his current school to provide a reference in advance of him joining us.
The next Year 7 Taster Session is taking place in November 2023 which is in place for boys wishing to join Davenies in September 2024. If you would like to register your interest, please contact our Registrar, Mrs Alison Payne.
