Occasional places

Sometimes we have places available in other year groups than our standard entry points and it is always worth contacting us to check. The timelines for admissions for occasional places in September 2020 are shown below. For occasional places, it may also be possible to start at the school in any term, and not just in the September entry. This may suit families who are relocating to the area.  We are academically selective and all girls who register with us will sit an age-appropriate assessment in the Prep School or entry examinations in the Senior School.


If you’d like to know more or to arrange a visit to the school with your daughter, please contact:

Prep School places – Prep Admissions Coordinator, Andrea James, on 01582 839260.

Senior and Sixth Form places – Senior Admissions Coordinator, Caroline Hardy on 01727 853 800
