For girls aged 4 – 11 years. Please follow the below steps:

Step One – Visit us

We invite you to look around the school and meet with the Head of the Junior School, Miss Hair.

Step Two – Registration

Simply complete our online registration form which can be found here, and pay the registration fee of £100.

Step Three – Taster Days, Assessments and Offers

Reception (age 4 – 5 years)

Once we receive your daughter’s registration form, we will write to you to offer a place for your daughter in Reception. There is no assessment for entry into our Reception class. Transition sessions are arranged for the summer term prior to the September start date, when girls spend time with their peers and their teachers.

Years 1 – 6 (age 5 – 11 years)

Girls are invited to spend a morning (Year 1) or a day (Years 2 – 6) with us, in a class with girls of her own age, for a ‘taster morning’ or a ‘taster day’, during which time she will participate in classroom-based activities and will complete assessments in English and Mathematics. She will also read a favourite book to her teacher or the Head of Junior School.

For applicants to Years 5 and 6, as well as time spent in the classroom, girls will sit short assessments online with the Admissions team, comprising English, Mathematics, non-verbal and verbal reasoning puzzles. Girls who sit the entrance assessment for entry into Year 5 and Year 6 are usually offered automatic progression to our Senior School.

Feedback on your daughter’s time with us is shared with you; we offer places following the successful completion of our assessments and time spent with the class. Further visits are arranged for the summer term, when your daughter will get to know her peers and her new teacher.

Nearly all girls transfer to the Senior School at 11 for the next stage of their education.

Step Four – Accepting a place for your daughter

Upon making an offer of a place for your daughter, we will ask you to complete our acceptance documentation, provide a copy of your daughter’s birth certificate or passport, and to make the deposit payment of £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, to ensure the transition to the High School is smooth and enjoyable for all.
