ADMISSION TO THE SENIOR SCHOOL
Applicants should have reached the age of eleven before 1st September in the year of entry. The entrance examinations are held in January prior to entering the school in September of the same year, and the aim is to test the skills of the candidates, whatever their background. Candidates are required to sit English and Mathematics papers in January. Sample papers can be found below from previous years. Following the entrance exam, a short-list of candidates will be called for interview, and from these the final selection is made. We aim for the interviews to be friendly yet challenging, finding out more about the girls and testing their ability to think on the spot. Girls who are offered places to enter Year 7 have the opportunity to visit the school before making a decision, and once again before the Autumn Term begins. There is a four form entry into Year 7. Just over 20 girls will enter the Senior School from the current Prep school, and we then have roughly 70-75 places for external girls.
The process can seem daunting, but we aim to make it as smooth and enjoyable as possible! We hope you will find all necessary information here, but please do email Miss Rachel Ford, Admissions Officer, if you have any questions at all.
