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

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

We make formal offers of places in mid-February as well as offers of Scholarships and Bursaries at this time.

On the Year 7 Entrance Assessment Day, your daughter will sit short online assessments in English, Mathematics, verbal and non-verbal reasoning. The assessments are based on the National Curriculum and there is no need for girls to specifically prepare for these assessments*. Your daughter will join in with a variety of team building activities, have lunch with us and participate in group activities and a ‘getting to know you‘ session in the afternoon.

On the Year 9 Entrance Assessment Day, your daughter will online assessments in Maths, English, verbal and non-verbal reasoning.

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 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, Taster Days and other events, to ensure the transition to the High School is smooth and enjoyable for all.
