Moving to Senior School

We hope and expect that all girls in Year 6 of our Junior School will move into Year 7 of the Senior School and there is no assessment day for entry to Year 7.

To prepare our Junior School pupils for life in Year 7, a variety of events are organised by the Admissions team and the Year 7 pastoral team. In Year 5 all pupils are invited to spend a morning in the Senior School enjoying sample lessons such as current affairs and philosophy with Senior School teachers. Regular catch-ups also take place between our junior girls and the Year 7 team to answer all of the questions girls may have about moving up. In Year 6, New Girls’ Day provides all girls moving to the Senior School to spend a school day with their new classmates and teachers.

Junior School girls join us happy and ready to enjoy life next door in the Senior School.

Moving to other schools

Of course moving to the Senior School may not suit every family and in previous years we have supported girls to access places at a range of first-choice Senior Schools including boarding schools, co-educational establishments and specialist schools.

Girls who do choose to leave at the end of Year 6 will be prepared and supported through the 11+ process.
