School for girls

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.

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). You can then register once your daughter is in Year 1. Please see pages 7-9 of our Admissions Booklet below 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.

We have now closed our registration for 7+ entry for September 2018 (current year 2 pupils) and September 2019 (current year 1 pupils). You can join the waiting list for 2019 on this link.

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.
