We offer approximately 55 places to girls aged 16 or over each year. A small number of places will also be available for boys of the same age. The successful candidates will join the vast majority of our current Year 11 boys as they continue into the Sixth Form.

The selection process
Initial selection will be by means of the UCS 16+ Assessment. The Assessment will not be subject-specific but will be an objective multiple-choice test of thinking, reasoning and problem-solving skills. There is also a short, 20-minute writing task on a topical issue.
A confidential report (including a forecast of GCSE grades, or equivalent) will be requested from each candidate’s current school. As many candidates as possible will be called to UCS for an interview following the assessment. Offers of places will be made to successful candidates in December. These offers must be firmly and finally accepted or declined at that time. All our offers are conditional on GCSE performance, typically requiring an average grade of 7.0 across all eligible subjects. Further information about our offers and subject requirements will be provided upon application, or are available on request from the Senior School Admissions Office.
If you have any questions, please contact the Senior School Admissions Office on 020 7433 2117/ 2118 or email us at email@example.com.
