Procedures for our Prep, Senior and Sixth Form entry are detailed below. Our Registrar, Mrs Sally Hill, is more than happy to help with any queries or the arrangement of private tours and taster days. She can be contacted using the form at the bottom of this page.
Foundation and Reception (Ages 3 to 5 years)
A short morning in school to assess the suitability of the child.
Key Stage 1 (Ages 6 to 7 years)
A day in class and assessment of reading, writing and numeracy.
Key Stage 2 (Ages 8 to 11 years)
A full day in school with a formal test in English, mathematics and writing.
Senior School (Ages 11 to 16 years)
Entrance is by examination, interview and a reference from the current school.
For entrance to Year 7, there are written examinations consisting of papers in Maths, English and Verbal Reasoning. For Year 7 entry (September 2022) these examinations will take place on Saturday 9th October 2021. Older girls may apply for entry at any time in the school year if places are available. They sit a written examination appropriate to their age which normally includes a paper in a modern foreign language.
Our next Taster Morning for Year 7 entry in September 2022 is taking place on Saturday 25th September 2021.
The event will take place from 9:00am until 1pm, and will give your daughter an opportunity to sample a variety of subject choices. Registration will open shortly. You will be able to select your three taster sessions from the choices provided.
Sixth Form (Ages 17 to 18 years)
Entrance to the Sixth Form is conditional on GCSE results.
We would normally expect a minimum of five GCSEs at grades 9 – 4 with a 6 in those subjects to be studied. A satisfactory reference from Kingsley’s Head of Year 11 or, if the student is from another school, from a senior member of staff, is also required.
Students are invited for formal interviews with the Headteacher and the Head of Sixth Form and will need to provide evidence of their GCSE results.
