Year 7 (11+) Entry

Entry to the Senior School is in Year 7 (11+). 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.

At 11+, up to 60 Year 7 places are available for external applicants who sit the entrance examination in December of Year 6.

Entrance Examination

Our 11+ Entrance Examination will be held on Saturday 30th November (for 2025 entry).

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. We do not provide past or sample papers.

11+ Taster Days

Our Taster Days are run by our specialists teachers for girls wishing to join Year 7 in September 2025.
