Points of Entry

Prep School

Girls join the Prep School at various stages but entry at Reception level is highly recommended. There is usually one form entry in the Prep School and classes often become full from Prep 3 upwards. Entry is subject to availability, an interview with our Headmaster, a reference/school report from your daughter’s current school and a positive Taster Day. Girls do not sit entrance examinations but will be informally assessed during their Taster Day. Girls in the Prep School usually move up to our Senior School at the end of Prep 6 unless it is felt that they would be uncomfortable with the academic demands of the Senior School.

Senior School

Most girls join the Senior School in Year 7, with about one third of the intake coming from our own Prep 6 girls and the other two thirds coming from local primary schools, other Prep schools or out of county. Entry is subject to interview with our Headmaster, a positive Taster Day, a reference from your daughter’s current Head Teacher and at least a satisfactory performance in the 11+ entrance examinations taken in the January of Year 6. Girls sit two papers – Mathematics and English with papers set in line with the Key Stage 2 curriculum at Level 4 and above.

Girls may join higher up in the Senior School subject to availability, an interview with our Headmaster, a reference from their current Head Teacher and a successful entrance examination. Girls would normally be expected to sit papers in Mathematics and English but, on occasion, may also be tested in other subjects as well.

Sixth Form

Each year girls join our Sixth Form from other schools. The entry requirements are 7 GCSE passes (or equivalent) at Grades C and above, a positive Taster Day and an interview with our Headmaster. For those subjects to be studied at AS level, at least a grade B at GCSE (or equivalent) is required with most pupils offering grades A or A*. Prospective pupils are invited to have a Taster Day during Year 11 (to fit in with their own current studies) and will spend the day as a Sixth Former joining in with as many of their AS level subject choice lessons as the timetable allows.
