We strongly encourage parents of girls who wish to apply for a place at 7+ to come one of our School in Action Mornings, giving them 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.
Parents are most welcome to bring their daughters to the Open Day, held in the Autumn Term, so that they can follow a ‘Junior School Trail', experience the activities and visit the classrooms used for the assessments.

Admission to the Junior School (7+) - 8 to 10 places
Girls enter the Lower School (Yr 3) in their 8th year. Thus, for September 2014 entry at 7+, girls must have a date of birth between 1 September 2006 and 31 August 2007. We register applications for entry in September in the period between May and November of the previous year.
The Entrance Tests take place in January prior to the September entry.
The process is in two stages. The first stage involves preliminary written tests which assess literacy and numeracy. Selected candidates are then called for interview and a practical session. For the first stage tests, the 7 year old candidates will be expected to:
1. Write a story using full sentences and some interesting vocabulary.
2. Read fluently with understanding in order to give answers to written questions.
3. Write the answers to these questions in simple sentences.
4. Understand the concept of addition, subtraction, multiplication and 'sharing'/division and to be able to apply these rules to 'story' sums.
5. Know the 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 times tables.
6. Have a basic understanding of time, money and block graphs.
