Candidates sitting the November Entrance Assessments into Year 7 must be registered by mid-September of the year preceding entry. Thereafter you will be asked to complete an Examination Entry Form giving the School consent to contact your daughter’s current school for recent progress reports and a confidential Headteacher’s reference. This form also gives you the opportunity to enter your daughter for any of the Gifted and Talented Scholarships available. Please click on the link below for more information.
Academic and Gifted & Talented Scholarships
All candidates registered by the deadline will sit examinations in English, Mathematics and Reasoning which are designed to double as a straightforward Entrance Assessment and, for the more able girls, as an Academic Scholarship examination. Pupils will also have a short interview with our Headmistress. For guidance purposes, prospective Academic Scholars will be working at Level 5 or above in the National Curriculum. The Assessments will be held in mid-November and an offer letter will be sent out 2 weeks later. If the School makes a formal offer of a place and you choose to accept it, you will be required to complete an Acceptance Form and return it with a deposit within a fixed period of time in order to secure the place.
For candidates who have missed the November Assessments places may still be available. Please contact Jennifer Gandy, Registrar, to discuss this further as parents should not be discouraged from applying at any stage.
