Senior School

We aim for the Admissions process to be a straightforward one for parents and an exciting and enjoyable one for prospective pupils.

The Senior School is a four form entry so, although more than 40% of pupils come from our two form Junior School, the majority of girls entering the Senior School are new girls joining us from a wide range of feeder prep and primary schools.

Admissions Process

Online Application

The process for Admissions begins when you apply online and pay the non-refundable application fee of £100. Early applications are recommended.

For 11+entry, the closing date for applications is Friday 22nd November 2019.  

Interviews

All applicants are invited to interview with the Headmistress or one of the Deputy Headteachers in the Autumn Term. This interview is an opportunity to learn more about your daughter, her academic interests and talents, and is not a formal part of the academic selection process.

Entrance Assessments

The Entrance Examination will consist of tests which are non subject specific and which test a pupil’s academic potential. They cover verbal, non-verbal, spatial and quantitative reasoning skills. Alongside these standardised tests, girls sit a short creative writing paper and a brief mathematics extension exercise.

During the morning your daughter will also be involved in some team and problem-solving activities and will be provided with light refreshments. If your daughter has any special requirement or health concerns, kindly contact the Admissions Registrar.

For more information about the process we use to select girls at each stage please refer to our Information booklet.

We operate a waiting list in other year groups. 

Our Admissions Registrar, Mrs Clarke will be happy to assist with any individual queries by email admissions@bro.gdst.net or by telephone 020 8781 7066
