‘Ready for School’ sessions
Thursday 10 November 2016 and Thursday 12 January 2017 10 – 11am or 2 – 3pm
Your daughter will join us for a short session in our Early Years unit to help us determine her readiness for school. It’s friendly and informal. We’ll be looking for good speaking and listening skills and making sure she can follow instructions.

Years 1 – 6 assessments
Autumn Term 2016 onwards
Your daughter will join us for a ‘taster day’, which will include an assessment in English and Mathematics. There’s no need to prepare for this. She’ll have a fun day with one of our current classes and find out more about school life here.
Saturday 14 January 2017
Your daughter will sit an entrance examination and have an informal interview with our Head, Julie Keller, and other staff. We’ll also request a reference from her current school.
We’ll be testing her in English, Mathematics and Verbal Reasoning. Each paper takes approximately one hour. There’s no need to prepare for our exams, as we’ll be looking for your daughter’s potential and understanding rather than particular areas of knowledge. Her interview and reference will also help us to assess whether our school is one in which she will thrive.
Your daughter will be invited to spend a day with us, to sample her preferred A Level classes and find out more about our school. She’ll also have a short informal interview.
We’ll request a reference from her current school, and conditional offers of places will be made from early December onwards on a first come, first served basis.
