Admission to the Sixth-Form - approximately 20 places

Registration for 2017 entry is now closed

We admit approximately 20 girls each year into our Sixth Form to join girls coming up from our own Year 11.  We welcome girls who bring new approaches and fresh ideas. Our entrance test and interviews ensure that the candidates are embarking on the right Sixth Form courses and are secure in their background work.

Applications are accepted between July and October of the year preceding admission.

After making the payment you will receive an emailed receipt from ParentPay which is proof of payment and registration.

Entrance Procedure 

Candidates are invited for one day of entrance tests in mid-November. These tests are in subjects they are planning to study in the Sixth Form, and are based on the common core of the GCSE syllabuses. Short-listed candidates are subsequently called for interviews with the appropriate Heads of Department in late November.

The candidate's present school is asked for a reference and for predictions for GCSE. When a candidate is accepted, it is usually unconditionally, on the basis of our tests.

Visiting the school 

Prospective Sixth Formers and their families are invited to attend one of our Open Events at the School which are held throughout the year. In the Autumn term, the School holds a 16+ Course Consultation event providing the opportunity to discuss courses with Heads of Department and other members of staff, and to talk to current Sixth Formers, as well as the Head of Sixth Form and the Director of Studies. 

For information about our 16+ events, please see here.

Fee Assistance

In addition to scholarships based on academic ability, Governors' Bursaries are available for Sixth-Form candidates, in case of financial need. Parents are asked to submit the relevant forms for Governors' Bursaries when their daughters are called for interview.

More information is available in the Fees Assistance section.

Late Applications

Places sometimes become available in the Sixth Form after the November entrance tests have been completed. Late applications may be made up to mid-March. Please note however that there is no guarantee that places will be available at this stage, and that all financial awards will have been made following the November entrance procedure.
