Entry at 11+

We welcome applications from candidates interested in joining Year 7 for entry in September 2024 and beyond.

The deadline for applications to Year 7 is 1 September one year ahead of entry. For those candidates who have missed our application deadlines: while we cannot guarantee that we will be able to process late applications, we advise you to send a copy of the candidate's latest school reports and a covering letter outlining their strengths and interests, and we will keep the information on file. 

We will contact you if we are able to proceed with an application at a future date.
