Entry at 11+

We understand that all girls arriving at STAHS for entrance testing are likely to be nervous and may be sitting papers at a number of schools. With this in mind we work to make the admissions experience as smooth and straightforward as possible. After sitting the papers, which are designed to be interesting and stimulating, those invited for interview will find themselves engaged in activities that are challenging but fun. In addition to factual knowledge we aim to test problem-solving, mental ability, creativity and skills of communication. For many girls a further exploration of each of these, together with team work and discussion skills, will take place during individual or group interviews. At the interview stage we aim to evaluate the pupils in the round and take into consideration their interests, confidence and potential for full participation.

To register your child for a place at the Senior School please complete the Registration Form, either electronically using the link below or sending a hard copy to us. Your registration is confirmed by paying a non-transferable registration fee of £100. This can be done by bank transfer using the account details on the Registration Form, or by sending a cheque with your daughter’s name written on the back as the reference.
