Making an application

Making a Registration for your daughter will require you to set up a unique login to our Admissions Portal. Please make sure you make a note of the email address and password for future use. From our Admissions Portal you will be able to book open events, make applications (including scholarship applications), complete important forms, track your applications progress and communicate with us directly. We hope this will make your family's journey through our admissions process as simple and convenient as possible. Once your login is set up follow the link on any of our admissions pages to log back into your account.

Joining at Other Points

Girls can apply to join us elsewhere in our Senior School, as long as we have places available. Your daughter could join us in any year group – apart from Year 11, and if she joins Year 10, we would prefer her to do this by the half term of the Autumn Term. 

She would need to take an entry test, appropriate to her age, in English, Maths and French (or her main modern foreign language). She would also come to an interview with the Headmistress, and we would ask her current school for a confidential report on her achievement and progress.

Before applying, you’ll need to complete a registration form via the Admissions Portal.

To find out about availability in our Senior School, please call Admissions Manager, Alexandra Jackson, on 0121 454 5831 or email
