Year 7 Admissions Process 

The first stage in the admissions process is to return the Registration Form and £75 non-returnable registration fee to our Registrar, Mrs Alison Young. This form is available to download here or from the Registrar. You will then receive confirmation of your registration and a Senior Entry form which should be completed and returned. You can also download this form here.


You and your daughter will be invited to attend an interview with the Headmaster or a member of his Senior team; these interviews are scheduled in the autumn term, during the working week. This is an opportunity for the school to find out about your daughter's aspirations for Senior School and for you to explore whether Cranford House provides a good fit.

Pupils who wish to be considered for a scholarship will also have an additional individual interview at this time to discuss their specialist area. Please refer to the Scholarships and Bursary Applications Booklet for more information.

Entrance Assessments

For September 2018 entry, the entrance assessments will take place in January 2018. Pupils sit assessments in English and Mathematics and take a Developed Ability test. 

School Reference

Cranford House contacts Primary School or Prep School Heads for references during the Autumn Term of Year 6.

Offer of a Place

Assessment results are reported to the Headmaster who makes a final decision to offer a place. Pupils receive a formal written offer together with copies of terms and conditions, medical form and an acceptance form. These must be returned with a deposit of £750 to secure your daughter's place.
