Senior School

Most girls enter the Senior School at 11+ and 13+ through our annual application cycle. You will find the key dates for September 2020 entry below.

We often have interest in other year groups too, as well as girls joining us during the school year. We aim to offer flexibility for parents and to hold assessments whenever possible subject to the availability of places.

Our Admissions Officer, Mrs Julie White, is here to help you every step of the way. Please do get in touch: / 020 8225 3001

A step-by-step guide to admissions

Step 1

Come and get to know us. You can either book online for an Open Event or it's easy to arrange a personal tour (which includes a meeting with the Headmistress where possible). If you want, you can do both! We look forward to meeting you.

Step 2

To apply for a place, please complete our online application form. You will need to pay a non-refundable registration fee of £100 (or £150 for overseas applications). For entry at 11+ and 13+ please note the key application deadlines.

Step 3

Your daughter will be invited to attend an entrance examination day. There are written papers in English and Mathematics, an online reasoning test and an informal interview. If applying for Year 10 and above your daughter will also be asked to sit a Science test.

Step 4

On successful completion of the assessment, we will make your daughter an offer. A confidential report from the girl’s previous Head will always be requested. An acceptance deposit of £1,000 is payable when you return the signed contract. We look forward to welcoming you to Sutton High School!

International students

We welcome applications from students who are permanently resident outside the United Kingdom. Overseas candidates follow the same entry process as UK residents. An additional paper to assess their English language skills may be required.

Although we can usually arrange for overseas candidates to sit our assessment papers at their current school abroad, we strongly recommend that students visit us before accepting a place.

I am bowled over by my daughter's new-found confidence. I can see it in the way she speaks and the way she holds herself.
