Covid 19 Notice

Please assume that the tests for entry to Year 7 September 2021 will go ahead as planned. We are keeping the situation regarding Covid 19 under constant review. At the moment we have made no changes to the exam arrangements, but will update you via email when decisions have been taken in line with ongoing government advice and guidance for schools. With regard the actual tests, please be reassured that while setting the tests, we have taken into account the school closure affecting Year 5. 
Please note the Stage One test is a sifting test and there is no pre-set pass mark.

The full admissions policy for 2021 entry and a list of FAQs are under the title Important Documents below. A condensed overview can be found in the Summary Guidance.

Our catchment area is made up of an Inner Area and a Designated Area and girls living in these Areas are given priority. Disadvantaged children are given the highest priority in our oversubscription criteria: those who are looked after children or previously looked after children, those in the catchment area who are eligible for means-tested free school meals, or those in the catchment area who are registered as a service child at their current school.

Since the Designated Area was introduced in September 2014, all places have been offered to girls living within it. It is anticipated that the school will continue to be heavily oversubscribed and that the offer of all places will be accepted by girls living within the Designated Area. The Designated Area is the 44 postal districts listed in the documents below and the Inner Area zone is the 10 named electoral wards.
