Entry at Year 7

This is the main point of entry to our school. We usually accept between 85 and 100 pupils in Year 7, using the 1 September birthday watershed for determining eligibility.

The entrance examination consists of papers in English (45 minutes), Mathematics (45 minutes) and Verbal Reasoning (60 minutes including 15 minutes practice). To download specimen examination papers in English and Mathematics and for further information on Verbal Reasoning, please refer to the Entrance Examination section.

All parents and their daughters meet the Head Master or one of his Senior Management Team as part of the entry procedure prior to our examination. These visits are arranged through our Registrar during Year 5 or the beginning of Year 6. You will be notified of the results and details of any financial assistance that we can offer soon after the examination.  New Year 7 girls and their parents will be invited into school during the summer term, before they start with us, to receive more information and meet their Form Tutors and new classmates.
