How to Apply to the Senior School
Year 7 entry to the Senior School is by examination. Applications are welcome from children born after 31st August 2007 and before 1st September 2008.
The Examination will be held on Monday 14th January 2019. 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
Application Forms will be available from September 2018. The completed application form, together with the £50 registration fee, should be returned before the closing date of Friday 14th December 2018.
The School will interview a significant proportion of candidates for places at Year 7. The interviews will be held on Monday 28th January - Monday 11th February inclusive. Full details of times and interviews will be posted to candidates after the Entrance Examination.
Results will be posted first class on Monday 25th February 2019.
Parents are given the opportunity to visit the School again after places have been offered. Post-offer tour dates are Thursday 28 February, Friday 1st March, Monday 4th March and Tuesday 5th March 2019.
Replies to offers of financial assistance and Scholarships are required by noon on Tuesday 5th March 2019 and all other offers by noon on Thursday 7th March 2019.
