Admission to our Junior School (4-11 years)

The main point of entry to our Junior School is into two classes in Reception. Admission is by a selection process – this is outlined below. We also hold 7+ assessments for entry into Year 3, for a limited number of places.

Our deadline for September 2018 entry has now passed and we are no longer able to receive applications.

If you are interested in September 2019 entry or beyond we will be holding further Open Mornings as follows:

02 May 2018 - booking will open on 01 March 2018

26 June 2018 - booking will open on 01 April 2018

11 September 2018 - booking will open 01 July 2018

18 September 2018 - booking will open 01 August 2018


Bookings are necessary so that we can manage numbers. To book onto one of these events please visit our Open Day Page : click here

In the year preceding entry, please register your daughter by the given deadline, using the online registration form linked below and paying online the registration fee of £110. The registration fee covers our administrative costs and is non-refundable.  If you wish your daughter to sit our tests overseas (occasional vacancy or Year 3 entry only) you are asked to pay a registration fee of £175, to cover courier fees. Registration forms will be posted below from the registration opening date.

Applying for Reception

Assessments are held in a nursery-style environment, with activities designed to enable the child to relax and be themselves. At 4+ we are looking for potential, rather than what has already been learnt. The assessment covers language and social skills, number, physical and creative skills; girls who successfully come through the first round in November are invited back in January. See the timeline below:

Assessments for 7+ are held in a formal setting and cover three areas of learning:

In addition, the girls have a semi-formal group interview, which will include reading.

With families sometimes relocating for work reasons out of the area at short notice, occasional vacancies may arise in any year group mid-year, so it is worth contacting us if you are looking for a place for your daughter - please fill in the enquiry form below, or contact our Junior Admissions Secretary, Mrs Noreen Rashid.
