Senior School Assessment
Girls join the School from a wide range of independent and state-maintained schools.
Assessment tests are designed to test future potential and we take account of the fact that pupils in different schools may well have reached different stages at the time the assessments take place.
Informal small group interviews give each applicant the opportunity to demonstrate the positive contribution she could make to this vibrant community.
The assessment day is designed to be as relaxed and informal as possible, giving all our candidates the chance to meet and interact with our current girls before completing the entrance assessment. Girls are assessed in English, Mathematics and Verbal Reasoning on the assessment day. Full details of our examination criteria for all age groups are detailed in our Admissions Guide booklet, which can be downloaded here.
During her assessment day, your daughter will have the benefit of an informal interview with a small group of candidates with the Head. We hope that this will provide her with the reassurance necessary for her to do herself justice in the more formal assessments.
The assessment day for girls who would like to start in September 2017 are:
• Year 7 – Week Commencing 9th January 2017
• Years 8 and 9 - Friday 13th January 2017
We are also happy to consider later registrations and assessments at any stage of the school year, subject to places being available. If this is the case, we would encourage you to come along for a personal visit or a taster day.
