We warmly welcome prospective parents and pupils to come and visit St. Augustine’s Priory. Our main entry points are Nursery, Reception, Year 5, Year 7 (11+) and Sixth Form, with entry considered in other years, subject to availability.

Assessments and Entrance Exams

Girls are mainly admitted to St Augustine’s Priory at 4+ (Prep I), 9+ (Lower II), 11+ (Form III) and 16+ (Sixth Form). Occasionally places arise in other years and information about available places may be obtained from the Admissions Office. Once a completed Application Form is received your daughter’s name will be placed on the Applications Register appropriate for her age and will be considered should a vacancy arise.

Pupils wishing to enter Nursery through to Prep III (Year 2) are usually invited to attend classroom assessments.  However, we are adjusting this to interview and some written tests during the pandemic.  Candidates wishing to enter into Lower I – Lower II (Years 3-5) will sit formal written assessments in English and Maths.  They will also meet the Deputy Head – Juniors for a friendly conversation.  All applicants and their parents from Nursery to Upper II (Year 6) meet with the Headteacher.

We have joined the 11+ London Consortium. Entry into the Senior School for 11+ takes place on Selection Day, Friday 8th January 2021. Interviews will also take place on Selection Day. More detail about Selection Day will be made available shortly.

Candidates wishing to join our Sixth Form, Priory 6, will be invited for an interview on Selection Day and should bring a copy of their predicted GCSE grades and/or results of their recent mock examinations.

Following demand, we are accepting registrations for entry into some year groups for the 2020-2021 academic year.  Please contact the Registrar for more information.
