The ballot for the twenty-two places available is drawn by the Chairman of Governors with two other people in attendance. As there is a sibling policy, sisters of children already at the school are automatically offered places; therefore it is only for the remaining places that names are taken from the ballot. In addition, a waiting list is drawn up.  These children are offered places should anybody be unable to take up the place.

The girls who are unsuccessful at the ballot stage are registered, if their parents wish, for 7+ entry in the appropriate year.

The younger sisters of any children gaining  places at 7+ will only gain automatic places in our Reception class under our sibling policy if the ballot for their year group has not yet been drawn. If the relevant ballot has already been drawn the younger sisters of successful 7+ candidates will be put on the waiting list, but if there is no movement on that list they will have to sit the 7+ assessment in the appropriate year, when no sibling priority is given.
