year 7 (age 11+)
ADMISSION TO YEAR 7
We welcome 70-75 girls into Year 7 each year to join our current Year 6 girls in the Senior School. Girls must have reached the age of eleven before 1st September in the year of entry, and will be in Year 6 when they sit their entrance exam.
There is a two-stage entrance assessment (exam and interview) which takes place in January prior to entering the school in September of the same year.
The process can seem daunting at first, but we aim to make it as smooth and enjoyable as possible! We will keep you regularly updated with where we are in the process, what happens next and how your daughter is getting on. We hope you will find all necessary information here, but please do email Mrs Rachel Kearney, our Admissions Officer, if you have any questions at all.
