Entry to Senior School

We are always thinking about making sure your daughter is ready for her individual next steps. We know our girls really well and prepare for a seamless transition to the Senior School, meaning girls can really make the most of all Year 6 has to offer without the added pressure of entrance exams. Your daughter will visit the Senior School site regularly for activities including Forest School, Swimming and Games. More than 90 per cent of girls choose to stay but for the small number for whom it’s not the right choice, we will support them in their journey.
