What the Good Schools Guide says...
Girls are focused, thoughtful, happy, confident, articulate and well behaved, appreciative of the way the school is 'always trying to improve itself'. One girl we met said, 'Stress is a bit of a problem,' because expectations are very high, but others added, 'A teacher will talk to you if she thinks you're putting too much pressure on yourself'...
What the school says...
Entrance examinations consist of: Age 11 - Maths, VR & non-VR.
Age 16 - The minimum academic requirements for entry of Applicants into the Sixth Form is four GCSE passes at grades A*/A plus two GCSE B grades. A*/A at GCSE are required in the subjects to be studied at AS/A2 level. For specific subjects see the Sixth Form Prospectus. All girls entering the sixth form will be required to have passed GCSE Mathematics and GCSE English Language at a minimum of grade B (or an equivalent qualification recognised for tertiary education in the UK which will allow them to communicate effectively in spoken and written English and to understand spoken and written English without difficulty).
