    11+ Examination for entry to the school in September 2017

    KEHS has decided to move its exam from January so that it is closer in time to the state grammar school examinations in September.

    The 11+ entrance examination for entry to the school in September 2017 will now take place on Friday 7th October 2016.

    We aim to post results of the entrance examinations before Christmas.

    Open days will be held on:

    Saturday 17th September 9.45am – 12 noon

    Closing date for applications: Monday 26th September 2016 

    One of the best ways to discover what KEHS has to offer is to visit on one of our open occasions.  These take place twice a year and there is an evening in the autumn term for girls interested in joining the Sixth Form. You are most welcome to come and meet staff and girls and see for yourself the unique blend of tradition and innovative thinking which is at the heart of KEHS. Copies of our prospectus and application forms are available from the right hand menu or can be posted on request. The majority of girls join King Edward VI High School for Girls in Year 7 or at Sixth Form level.

    Entrance examinations for Year 7 take place at the beginning of October. The majority of candidates are not interviewed, but occasionally the Principal may wish to see some girls before offers are finalised. We aim to notify parents of the outcome before Christmas.

    For Sixth Form we ask girls to sit examinations in the subjects they wish to study at A level and these usually take place on a Saturday during the Spring Term.  It is current practice for all Sixth Form candidates who perform well in the examinations to be interviewed before offer letters are sent out.

    It is important for parents to advise whether or not they are accepting places as soon as possible and a deadline for that is issued.
