We will likely follow a similar process for 2025 entry as is currently underway for 2024 entry.  Please see the Senior Admissions Guide 2024, and key dates for entry, for details on the 11+ process.

Our typical cohort size is around 104, in four forms, with some variation year-on-year. Every five years, we have capacity in school to accept a larger cohort, taking it through from Year 7 to sixth form. We like to do this as it means we are able to give out offers to more amazing girls and disappoint fewer of them. We will for September 2024 entry be able to accommodate five forms instead of the usual four and so this may be a five form entry. This will depend on the quality of applications and enough candidates reaching the required levels, and so is not a given.

11+ Testing 2024

For September 2024 entry, we will be testing Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning as our first stage. Tests will be taken in person at Wimbledon High School

The well-being of pupils is a key concern for us. We know that schools have fared differently during Covid and that learning has often been disrupted. We also know that our tests can be prepared for at home, without input necessary from a candidate's current school; pupils do not have to had endless practice in them. The results of the tests allow us to make fair, evidence-based decisions as to who will progress through to our second stage.

For more information about our curriculum and wider school life, see our Senior School section of this website.
