We are an all-through school

When your daughter joins us in the Junior School, we expect that she will continue through to the Senior School and into the Sixth Form. In the Spring term of Year 5, the overwhelming majority of girls receive an unconditional, confirmed offer of a place in Year 7 of the Senior School.

Our Junior School girls do not have to sit the 11+ assessment test, which means we can continue to explore the curriculum, extend their learning and get them ready for a seamless move to the Senior School.

Moving up with ease

To help ease the next step in our Year 6’s Notting Hill journey, Senior School teachers visit the year group on a regular basis during their final year at Junior School, as they start to look ahead at how to best prepare for life in Year 7. The Year 6s also have access to some English and Maths lessons to provide them with an insight into the style of teaching in the Senior School.

This includes an induction day in the summer term, where there will be a chance for all our future Year 7s to meet their new Form tutors, find out about their new classmates and provide them with the opportunity to start to feel relaxed in their new surroundings.

During the summer holidays we also hold a pre-season sports training open to all new Year 7s, giving them the chance to get to know each other a bit more, meet our PE Department and have fun playing sport.
