Senior School Admissions
Entry to the Senior School is by examination and interview. Examinations are held in January of each year and, following a review of the examination results, a significant number of girls will be invited for interview in the three to four weeks following the examination day. Please refer to our published Admissions Timetable for the next admissions cycle.
The Senior School Examinations for entry into Year 7 (Third Form) are for girls aged not less than 10 years 6 months and under the age of 12 years on 31st August in the year of entry. Papers are taken in English, Mathematics, Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning. Places do become available in other Years and interested parents should contact our Admissions Officer, Ms Jane Ellis, on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0161 249 3371, for further information.
We ask parents to inform us, using the confidential information form, of any disability or special educational need which might affect their daughter’s ability to participate in the admissions procedure. We will consult with parents about the adjustments which can reasonably be made to ensure that the application procedure is accessible for their daughter and that the Senior School can cater adequately for her should an offer of a place be made.
