Entrance Criteria

All parents are encouraged to visit the school prior to assessment, either on an Open Day or by appointment via the junior school secretary on 020 8260 7508.

The Head of Junior School will take parents on a tour of the school, during which time they can discuss their daughter’s entry, ask questions and receive any relevant information. Although official testing time is in January prior to entry the following September, girls can be assessed individually at other times during the year for immediate entry.


Testing for Nursery

Testing for Nursery places in September 2018 took place on Tuesday 16th January 2018, however we appreciate that there may be interest in Nursery at other times of the year and subject to places being available, we will arrange testing at other times.

Groups of three or four girls will be invited to take part in an informal play session. Activities will be set up to encourage individual and group play and opportunities for interaction and discussion will form part of the assessment. The session lasts for approximately 45 minutes and will be led by one of our Early Years Teachers and a Teaching Assistant. During this time, the Head of the Junior School will meet with the parents of each pupil. The girls will not be expected to have had any formal teaching prior to the assessment.
