Extra time is allowed in our entrance examination for SEN girls, along with an educational psychologist report. Girls are admitted to the school on their academic ability. We have an SEN co-ordinator who works with the girls’ educational psychologists to ensure that staff are taking into account their specific learning needs.

“Our Junior School is a lively, happy place where girls blossom personally, intellectually and socially. Open any classroom door and you will find excited and engaged students who are fascinated by the topics they are learning. There is a constant ring of laughter as you walk around our school and the girls’ enthusiasm delights on a daily basis.
The Junior School is located next door to the Senior School. We share the Senior School’s outstanding facilities and Senior School staff teach our girls in some subjects. Girls receive a first class education and first class care from four years old until they leave us at eleven. They then progress naturally to our Senior School without an additional entrance exam.
There are around 280 girls in the Junior School with two classes per year group. Families tend to live within a short drive or within walking distance of the school.
We balance the pursuit of excellence with full participation. Everyone takes a full and active part in the school community, while individual talents are nurtured so that each girl develops her personal strengths and aptitudes.
It is difficult, if not impossible, to capture in the pages of this website the warmth, friendship and happiness which characterises our Junior School. The only way to truly experience what we can offer is to visit us and we hope to welcome you to the school soon.
Mrs Fiona Boulton, Headmistress”
