Prep School Admissions

Girls enter Year 3 in the September following their 7th birthday. There are several additional places for external candidates at this stage. Girls are invited for assessment with the Head or Deputy Head of SCPS. This usually lasts one hour. Girls are tested in English and Mathematics. An assessment will also be made of the candidate’s approach and attitude to learning.

Following the assessment a written report is requested from the candidate’s current school prior to an offer being made.

The deadline for applications into Reception, Year 1 & Year 2 is 12 April 2021.
The deadline for 7+ applications is 20 November 2020.

Occasional vacancies may arise. Please do contact us if you are applying after the deadline.
