Whatever their choices, our staff use their expertise and experience to guide each student. We offer support with UCAS form filling, interview practice and advice to ensure girls are confident and well positioned to move to the next stage of their education.

Our support does not end when students leave school. Girls return and some will want to discuss career options with us long after they leave school. Old Edwardians also provide a network that can help support former pupils and women at different stages of their careers.

We list below recent leavers to give a flavour of the variety of courses and destinations.

What exam papers will my daughter sit?

Girls taking the 11+ exam will sit papers in English and Maths.

Academic scholarships are awarded at the discretion of the Principal following the entrance examinations and you are not able to apply for one. There is no separate scholarship paper, but she may be invited for an interview.

Girls who wish to apply for a Music Scholarship must be at least working towards Grade 6 on their chosen instrument. Applicants interested in applying for the Music Scholarship must indicate so when registering for the exam.

We do not have a set number of scholarships each year.

A Governors’ Assisted Place is a means tested bursary which takes into account household income and parents’ gross assets.

Scholarships are not means tested; they are discretionary awards.

When registering your daughter for the entrance examination, please indicate on the registration form that you are interested in applying for a GAP. Once the entrance exam has taken place, we will contact parents of girls being considered for funding and invite them to complete an initial application form, which asks for basic financial information.

We will invite parents of girls under consideration for Assisted Place funding, to meet with the Fees Officer, before any offers of places or funding are made.

No. We accept applications from families based in a wide area, and do not give preference to those living locally or those girls attending particular schools.

We ask that all girls are in school by 9.30am.. Girls should be ready to leave around 2.45-3.00pm.

Girls do not need to wear their school uniform, just comfortable clothing. They will need to bring a packed lunch.

No. We do not interview all candidates; we interview mainly those being considered for a scholarship and assisted place. If you have not been called for an interview before the date that results are posted, this does not mean your daughter has been unsuccessful; it just means we don’t need to see her at this time.

Results of applications are normally posted to parents at the end of November or beginning of December following the entrance examination in October. We do not provide a score unlike the Grammar Schools 11+. We will write to you notifying you whether or not your daughter has been awarded a place in the school and what kind of offer she is receiving from us i.e. full fee, scholarship or assisted place etc.

Girls who are unsuccessful in their 11+ application are not able to re-apply to the school until the Sixth Form.

Governors’ Assisted Place and scholarship funding is only available for girls joining the school at the start of Year 7 and the Lower Sixth. All other offers made to girls joining the school during Years 7, 8 & 9 are full fee offers.
