How to Apply to the Senior School

Qualifying Age

Year 7 entry to the Senior School is by examination. Applications are welcome from children born after 31st August 2006 and before 1st September 2007. Where a child is younger than this, but well-suited academically and in maturity to transfer early to Secondary Education, consideration may be given, following a discussion with the Admissions Team.

Examination Date

The Examination will be held on Monday 15th January 2018 at 9.15am. Candidates who are ill on the day and unable to attend will be given the opportunity to sit our Supplementary Examination the following week. We think it is much better for anyone who is ill to sit the later examination, please don’t feel in any way pressured to send an unwell candidate in on Examination Day.

Examination Entry Fee and Closing Date

The completed application form, together with the £50 registration fee, should be returned as soon as possible. The closing date for applications is Friday 15th December 2017.


The School will interview a significant proportion of candidates for places at Year 7. The interviews will be held on Monday 29th January - Monday 12th February inclusive. Full details of times and interviews will be posted to candidates after the Entrance Examination.

Examination Results

Results will be posted first class on Monday 26th February 2018.

Parents are given the opportunity to visit the School again after places have been offered. Post-offer tour dates are Thursday 1st March, Friday 2nd March, Monday 5th March and Tuesday 6th March 2018.
