Ages of Entry
The usual ages of entry are 3, 11 and 16. Occasional vacancies occur at other ages.
Early registration is advised for entry at all ages. There are Open Mornings, Afternoons and Evenings throughout the year to which we invite prospective pupils and their parents. Visits can also be arranged at other times. The school can accept applications from any area and is happy to accept advance registrations for younger children at any time. Pupils of other ages may also be accepted into the school, particularly if their family has moved into the area.
Admission to the Prep School
Parents and pupils are invited to visit the school and meet the staff. Arrangements are then made for pupil assessment, which will become more formal depending on the age of the pupil. Information regarding the pupil’s current education is required prior to an offer of a place being made and the school will request a reference from the pupil’s current school.
Admission to the Senior School – 2018/2019
Most pupils from our Prep School will proceed into the Senior School. For all candidates, entry to the Senior School is by written examination in January, before entry in September. Applicants take one-hour papers in Mathematics and English.
All papers are designed to bring out the skills and potential of the candidates, whatever they may have covered in the past. Places are offered on the basis of performance in the examination, a report from the girl’s current school and an informal interview with the Headmistress.
Year 7 results for September 2019 will be sent to all families by mid-February 2019.
January 2019 exam date will be Saturday 12th January 2019, all morning.
Deadline for applications will be 20th November 2018.
