Entry to Key Stage 2
Entry into Key stage 2
JCP usually offers 5 additional places for girls from other primary schools to start at the beginning of Key Stage 2 every year. There is no sibling priority at 7+.
Places are gained through an assessment process, which will also include information from the pupil's current school. Students are expected to be achieving age related expectation or above.
Applications will not be accepted before the pupils have started in Year 2 in the September prior to when they start Year 3.
The admissions process begins once the College has received a completed application form for your daughter, together with an administration fee of £80.00. We will acknowledge receipt of the application when the application details have been entered into the College database. Application forms are below.
Registration means that your child will be added to our list of applicants, and we will keep in contact with you regarding your application. Registration does not guarantee admission to the College.
All applications to the College require an administration fee of £80.00. Payments can be made by using this link JCP Application Fee and make reference to your child’s name when making the payment.
Please send an email to the College Registrar Kate Robertson email@example.com to confirm when you have made the bacs payment online.
Please refer to the admissions policy below so that you can review the process in respect to your child’s application.
Securing your child's place
Once an offer has been made by the College, a non-refundable deposit of £400 is payable to secure your child’s place and this is offset against the first term’s fees.
Notice required to be given in advance of a student leaving the College
A full term’s notice from parents is required if a student is to be withdrawn from the school roll, failing which, a full term’s fees will be charged.
Entry to JCG
