St. Anthony’s girls are taught in a Catholic environment which is inclusive and open to all faiths. The Catholic ethos of the school will inform and guide its management and development in the coming years and the school also welcomes children from a non-Catholic background, continuing the excellent tradition of the boys’ school in contributing to the diverse, tolerant and inclusive nature of the local community.
The main points of entry are Reception (4+) and Year 3 (7+). From September 2021 we will be offering a 3+ entry.
Where spaces are available for Years 1, 2, 4 and 5, please follow the admissions procedure outlined.
The formal deadlines and assessments for 2021/22 entry have now passed. If you would like to apply for a place, please email email@example.com.
There is no formal assessment for 3+ entry.
The 4+ assessments are conducted informally; it will include play-based activities to determine strengths in their development, role play tasks to observe social skills and puzzle and games to explore potential.
Girls will work in individual and in small groups with the Headteacher and Deputy Head in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. These individualised assessments take one hour.
The 7+ assessments involve an age appropriate assessment in English (including reading, writing and spelling) and Mathematics and an opportunity to spend some quality time with Year 2. This individualised assessment will be followed by ‘talk time’ with the Headteacher. The report from their current school is also considered carefully.
To register interest in the school for future years, we kindly ask parents to submit an enquiry form which will be added to our records. We will then contact parents in the year preceding the child’s entry with information regarding upcoming open days and registration for the following academic year.
