Senior School

Year 7 Entry

Entry into the Senior School from the Junior School is automatic, provided that the Head feels a girl will cope with the work, Entry from other schools is by examination, interview and reference.

Years 8 to 11 Entry

Girls of all senior ages are welcome and placed according to ability – the main ages for entry are 11 and 13 years of age. Those looking to enter Year 9 will be required to select their GCSE option subjects prior to entry, in order that they begin an appropriate  three-year GCSE programme of study. Those looking to enter Year 10 will need to select their GCSE option subjects in close consultation with the Assistant Head Academic.

Entrance Exams

The Entrance & Scholarship Examinations for entry to Year 7 to 10 in September 2017 will take place in January 2017.

The entrance examinations are held in January and consist of Mathematics, English and Verbal Reasoning. Further details of the English and Mathematics syllabus for the examination will be sent once your daughter is on our list of prospective pupils. An informal interview will also be held in the December preceding the September entry.

We aim to make the entrance examination process as relaxed and enjoyable as possible. The main purpose is to establish the standard the girls have reached at their current schools so that we can be confident that the education we provide will build on their current strengths and meet their educational needs.

Mid Year Places

It is possible to admit girls mid-year if there are places available.
