When pupils have been selected for admission to Year 7, pupils and their parents are invited to visit the school on an evening in June (this year on Tuesday 18th June). There is an opportunity to see the buildings, meet the form teachers and hear details of the curriculum and the general arrangements for new entrants. The pupils also have the opportunity to attend the school for a day in the summer term (3rd July).
Parents of new pupils who enter the School during years 7 - 11 also see the school when they bring their daughters for assessment at the School.
