School for girls

Joining at Senior School

ADMISSION TO YEAR 7

We welcome 75-80 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 (exam and interview) which takes place in January prior to entering the school in September of the same year.

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.

If you are expecting an email from admissions and have not heard from us regarding your daughter’s entrance assessment, please check your spam/junk box. Some email providers, in particular Hotmail, block our emails.
Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

THE 11+ PROCESS

You will find full details of this and the whole 11+ process on pages 10-15 of our Admissions Booklet. Please email admissions@clsg.org.uk if you would like to receive a hard copy - you will find it useful to keep this booklet handy as we go through the process.

For girls applying for 11+ entry for September 2019 please note that City is not a member of the North London Independent Girls’ Schools’ Consortium.

Registrations for both 2019 and 2020 entry are currently open. We will be in contact after the closing date with information on the next steps.
