Admissions Process

submenu

Boarders and day girls join us at 11+, 13+ or 16+  

Registration

Girls join the school at 11+, 13+ or 16+. We will also consider girls for entry at 12+ and 14+ if places are available. Registration can be submitted at any stage but should be at least two years prior to the point of entry. Although early registration does not necessarily confer any advantage with regard to the final allocation of places, it may be taken into account. (Please see the Admissions Policy below) A registration form can be downloaded here or requested from the Admissions Office on admissions@tudorhallschool.com or 01295 756284. There is a registration fee of £100.

Taster Days

Girls registered for the 11+ intake may be invited to a ‘Taster Day’ during the summer term of Year 5. This involves coming to the school for a full day, for prospective day pupils, or a day and a night for prospective boarders. Girls find out what Tudor Hall is like and have great fun meeting girls from Year 7, going to lessons and sleeping in a boarding house. Unfortunately places are limited and have to be given on a first-come first-served basis.

Girls registered for the 13+ intake may be invited to a Taster Day early in the spring term of Year 7. This does not involve an overnight stay but is held on a Saturday to allow parents to come too and to have lunch with parents of the Year 7 girls who are already at the school. 

Assessment

11+ assessment takes place during the Autumn Term of Year 6, one year prior to entry. 

13+ assessment takes place in the Spring Term of Year 7, 18 months prior to entry. 

16+ assessment takes place in the Autumn Term of Year 11, one year prior to entry. 

An Application for Entry Form will be sent to all girls who are registered, inviting them to attend an assessment day. Forms should be returned with an administration fee of £200. On receipt of the completed form a reference will be requested from the candidate's current school.

Assessment days for 11+ and 13+ entry feature a programme of tests involving verbal reasoning, mathematics and English and an interview with the Headmistress.

Applicants for Sixth Form will sit a general paper as well as some subject-specific papers (eg mathematics and sciences). They will have interviews with Heads of Departments of proposed A Level subjects and the Head of Sixth Form.

The purpose of assessment days is to allow the school to assess the suitability of candidates for the school. Parents will be given feedback and places offered to those for whom Tudor Hall is viewed as the right school. All offers should be secured by a deposit of £750. Places offered at 11+ will be unconditional. At 13+ they will be conditional on the required standard being achieved at Common Entrance. At 16+ places offered after assessment are conditional upon GCSE results (at least 7 GCSEs A*C with at least an A in chosen A Level subjects).

Assessment for 2018

11+ assessments will take place on Thursday 12th and Saturday 14th October.

13+ assessments will take place on Thursday 16th March 2017. After this date they will take place by arrangement subject to places still being available. 

New Girls' Day 

Girls joining at 11+, 12+ and 13+ and their parents will be invited to spend a morning at the school during the summer term prior to the September of entry, when they can meet staff, other new girls and their parents and also purchase uniform.

Girls joining at 14+ may come and spend a day in school during the Spring or Summer Term.

Girls joining in the Sixth Form will be invited to the 34 day Sixth Form Induction Programme following GCSE examinations at the end of June.

Please contact the Admissions Department if you have any questions about the admissions procedure.

Directions to the school and the relevant telephone numbers are available on the contact page.
