Joining at Prep

ADMISSION TO THE PREPARATORY DEPARTMENT 

We welcome 24 girls into Year 3 to join the Prep School each year. Girls must have reached the age of seven before 1st September in the year of entry and will be in Year 2 when they sit their entrance tests. Our assessments take place in the November prior to entering the school the following September.

Registrations open in Spring, when your daughter should be in Year 1. We have a limit of 150 girls who can take our entry assessment. We strongly recommend that you come along to a 7+ open event before registering for entry (see our 'Open Days' section for dates).  Please see pages 7-9 of our Admissions Booklet for full details of the 7+ admissions process.

Please note that we do not offer bursary or scholarship awards for 7+ entry. These are awarded at 11+ and 16+ entry and if your daughter has started in the Prep department with us she will be eligible to apply for these when she moves into our Senior school .

Registrations for 2020 entry are closed now. Registrations for 2021 entry will open in Spring 2020. Please note that for 2021 entry your daughter must have been born between 1 September 2013 and 31 August 2014.
