In Year Admissions

In Year Admissions Arrangements (Year 8-Year 11) for mid year entry 2022-23

In Year application form

The In Year admissions process is set out in the In Year admissions policy above.

In Year applications must be made directly to Kingston Local Authority (RBK) on their In Year application form above.

Please note that because the normal entry points to the school are in Years 7 and Year 12 (Sixth Form), we rarely have places available in other year groups. The Year 7 cohort of 180 is expected to move up through the school in its entirety and therefore it is unlikely we will be able to offer a place before admission to Year 12.

In Year applicants will only be considered for entry to the year group appropriate to their date of birth. We run In Year selection tests towards the end of most terms to determine eligibility to the appropriate year group. Eligible applicants will be put on a waiting list if we are unable to offer an immediate entry place.

After RBK has accepted the application form, the school will send its own In Year Supplementary Information Form which applicants are required to complete before being invited for testing in school.

The selection test will consist of a Mathematics and English test. The test for each year group is different. Applicants will receive a list of Maths topics before the test day. The English paper will consist of a reading comprehension section and a writing section.

An applicant must meet the required standard in the Maths test and both sections of the English test to be eligible for a place at the school. The school’s required standard reflects the standard expected from a girl who demonstrates the capacity to progress and attain the grades achieved by the majority of our students at GCSE.

The Tiffin Girls’ School will inform applicants’ parents and RBK of the outcome of the application.

Applicants who have sat the admission tests for entry to Year 7 and scored below the cut-off score are not eligible to be tested again for entry to Years 8 to 11.
