School for girls

Joining at Senior School

ADMISSION TO YEAR 7

We welcome 72-80 girls into Year 7 each year to join our current Year 6 girls in the Senior School. Girls will be in Year 6 when they sit their entrance exam. 

There is a two-stage entrance assessment which takes place in January prior to entering the school in September of the same year:

  • Stage 1 exams in Maths and English
  • Stage 2  a general interview, for those girls successful in Stage 1

Under the current COVID-19 circumstances we are fully aware that parents of girls looking to apply to the school for admission next year are likely to be anxious about the academic provision their daughter may be getting at the moment. Please be reassured that this will be taken into consideration when we set and mark the assessment papers.

We will keep you regularly updated with where we are in the process, what happens next and how your daughter is getting on. We hope you will find all necessary information here, but please email admissions@clsg.org.uk if you have any questions at all. 

The process can seem daunting at first, but we aim to make it as smooth and enjoyable as possible. We will keep you regularly updated with where we are in the process, what happens next and how your daughter is getting on. We hope you will find all necessary information here, but please email admissions@clsg.org.uk if you have any questions at all. 

You will find full details of the whole 11+ process on pages 10-15 of our Admissions Booklet. Please look at this online.

For September 2021 entry girls should have a date of birth that falls between 1 September 2009 and 31 August 2010. Registrations are now open for 2021, please click here to register. 

We are able to waive the registration fee for families in receipt of social benefits. Please email admissions@clsg.org.uk with any relevant documentation and our Registrar will be able to advise you further.
