Entry at 4+

Admissions 4+ 

Registration for 2018 entry is open from 1st May - 15th November 2017.

Please use the link below to register your daughter if she was born between 1st September 2013 and 31st August 2014.

Admission to the First School - 40 places

Girls enter the First School’s Reception class in their 5th year. You should register your daughter from May to mid-November of the previous year. Thus, for September 2018 entry, girls must have a date of birth between 1st September 2013 and 31st August 2014.  

Our assessment process is in two stages and takes place in January. We are looking for what the girls can do, rather than what they cannot do. We do not expect a candidate to be able to read or write. The assessment comprises:

Part 1 – ‘Play’ activities testing school readiness which last about an hour.  Children are grouped by age and there are about 12 children per group.

Part 2 - A smaller group of girls are recalled for the second round which includes a one-to-one assessment of each girl.

Girls spend three years in the First School and move up to the Junior School in Year 3 when they are aged seven. 

Applications are registered between 1st May and 15th November of the year prior to entry.

Visiting the School

We strongly encourage the parents of girls who wish to apply for a place at 4+ to come to one of our School in Action Mornings, giving parents the opportunity to look around the Junior School whilst lessons are in progress. Upon arrival, refreshments will be available, followed by a talk from the Head of the Junior School giving information about the admissions process. Junior School girls will act as tour guides, showing parents around the classrooms and the school facilities.

Our annual Open Day, held in the Autumn term, provides the perfect opportunity for parents to bring their daughters to visit the school. They will be able to follow a ‘Junior School Trail', experience the activities and visit the classrooms used for the assessments.
