Entry at 16+

Each year, we welcome a number of new students into the Sixth Form to join the girls moving up from the Senior School. Applications for means-tested bursary places (with fee remissions ranging from 30% to 100% plus extras) are warmly welcome.

Applications for entry in September 2022 have now closed.  All places are offered based on the entrance examinations, interview and projected GCSE grades; offers are usually made on condition of candidates achieving at least six Grade 8s at GCSE.  If you have any queries about the application process, or would like to arrange a private tour, please contact senioradmissions@shhs.gdst.net
