Joining Reception

Joining Reception

For entry into Reception, we run a Ballot - find out more about our move to a Ballot here.

Our Reception (4+) Admissions Process

The main entry point to our Junior School is at 4 years old into Reception. Places for Reception are allocated by Ballot. Girls can be registered for entry at 4+ at any time from the end of the year of birth for their cohort until the deadline, although we must emphasise that no priority is given to early registrants. The registration fee is £150 (£200 if applying from overseas) and is non-refundable. 

Calculate your daughter's year of entry using the table below:

Please note: it is also a requirement for parents to visit the school at least once at one of our Open Events, before their daughter is entered into our Ballot draw. The Ballot is drawn in early October and offers made soon afterwards for entry to the school the following September. Girls not offered a place by ballot are placed on our waiting list.
