Our school offers a warm welcome. When it comes to the admissions time, you will have probably already visited the school and experienced for yourself what a friendly and open environment it is. That isn’t part of a show we put on for visitors: it is who we are. Lively, buzzing, unpretentious and proud of it.
We provide an outstanding, contemporary, girl-centred education for our students. We value intellect and imagination, cherish individual and unique strengths and nurture talent. This is reflected in our outstanding exam results at both GCSE and A Level & IB. But it all begins with a level playing field and that is what an entrance examination is designed to create. As a parent or guardian, you'll already have a great sense of your daughter's capabilities, so there should be nothing in these entrance assessments which will surprise her.
The registration form is available here. This form should be sent with your non-refundable registration fee of £50 (£100 for both UK and overseas students from September 2017) to our Registrar, Lynda Bevan. Cheques should be made payable to the GDST or for bank transfer details please contact Lynda Bevan on firstname.lastname@example.org

Wherever your daughter is coming from and whatever year group she joins, she will find friendship, support, guidance and supervision within every part of the school. With her peers, in her tutor group, in her house, in boarding, within all the academic departments and across the school community.
We help every girl to settle in, have fun, gain confidence in her own unique abilities, learn the value of personal responsibility, develop independent thinking, make a lasting and valuable contribution to school life, and develop friendships that will last a lifetime.
Taster Days are an integral part of our Admissions process, so please take a look at the forthcoming dates and contact our Registrar Lynda Bevan, direct on email@example.com, to book your place.
