Entry Procedure

Applying for Entry to WGHS

Whilst the majority of girls join WGHS at 11+ (Year 7) or at 16+ (Sixth Form), each year girls are welcomed into Years 8 and 9.

First Steps

If you are interested in your daughter joining WGHS, please get in touch with our Admissions Secretary, either by telephone or email, who will be happy to advise you on the entry procedure.

Come and Visit

Prospective parents and pupils are encouraged to come and visit WGHS, either on a personal visit, at our annual Information Morning or our Sixth Form Information Evening. Visiting the school will allow you to meet the staff and pupils, take a tour of the WGHS facilities and gather information about the life of the school.

Making an Application

An application form needs to be completed and returned to the Admissions Secretary, along with the small application fee, in order to register your daughter for entry into WGHS. Please note, the completion of an application form is no guarantee that your daughter will be offered a place at WGHS. Entry to the school is subject to your daughter meeting the necessary entrance requirements.

Taster Days

Following testing, if a girl would like to experience WGHS life, she is welcome to spend a day in school by prior arrangement with the Admissions Secretary.

Starting at WGHS

The majority of girls join WGHS at 11+ (Year 7) or at 16+ (Sixth Form). Many girls join us mid-stream and at other entry points throughout the school.
