Years 8-10 Entry Examinations

Provided space is available in a particular Year group we are happy to consider girls for entry either during Year 7 and for Years 8, 9 and 10. We will rarely accept a girl for entry into Year 11 because of the difficulty in ‘matching’ GCSE examination boards and syllabi against study already completed.

Your daughter will be invited in for a morning to sit a Maths and English paper so that we can assess her against the current cohort and standard required by the school. On occasion we may ask those girls in Years 8 and 9 to sit a foreign language paper as well, for setting purposes.

The papers normally take about 3 hours in total and parents can either collect their daughters at the end of the examination session or else she is welcome to rejoin the class with whom she will already have spent a Taster Day. This gives her another opportunity to have lunch and afternoon lessons with those girls with whom she might study in the future.

Please note that Scholarships (Academic, Music, Sport, Art and Drama) are available for entry to Year 9 but can, on occasion, be offered for entry to Years 8 and 10 as well.
