Step one – Registration

In the Senior School, the majority of girls join us at 11+ (Year 7) and at 13+ (Year 9), although we may have spaces in other year groups.

Simply complete our registration form, which can be found here or at the back of our General Information Booklet, sending the registration fee of £75 by cheque or bank transfer.


Step two – Taster Days, Assessment and Offers

In October, once you have registered your daughter with us, you will receive an invitation for her to attend an Entrance Assessment day in the January preceding the September intake. We make formal offers of places in February as well as offers of scholarships and bursaries at this time.

The Entrance Assessment day for girls hoping to join Year 7 in September 2018 will be held on Friday 12 January 2018.

On the Year 7 Entrance Assessment day, your daughter will sit one multiple choice paper in English and one in Mathematics. The papers are based on the National Curriculum and there is no need for girls to specifically prepare for these assessments. Your daughter will join in team building activities, have lunch with us and participate in group activities and a ‘getting to know you ‘ session in the afternoon.

The Entrance Assessment day for girls hoping to join Year 9 in September 2018 will be held on Monday 15 January 2018.

On the Year 9 Entrance Assessment Day, your daughter will complete assessments in Maths and English. In the afternoon there will be the opportunity to sit our academic scholarship paper if you would like your daughter to apply for this.

 

We make formal offers of Senior School places in February for the following September intake.

 

Should you wish your daughter to join us in other year groups in the Senior School, or at other times of the year, we are pleased to make individual arrangements for taster days, entrance assessment and admission.


Step three – Accepting a place for your daughter

On making an offer of a place for your daughter, we will ask you to complete our acceptance documentation and to make the deposit payment (£500) to secure your daughter’s place with us.

The deposit will be refunded to you when your daughter leaves the school. There are a number of opportunities for girls and their families joining the school to get to know their teachers and peers before they start with us, including Welcome and Information Evenings, Welcome Days and other events, so that the transition to the High School is smooth and enjoyable for all.
