Admissions : Entry into Year 7 in September 2021

If you are a parent or carer considering applying for a place at The Grey Coat Hospital for your daughter in Year 7 in September 2021, please see the GCH Admissions Policy 2021 and our Online Application form for Entry into Year 7 2021

The banding test at The Grey Coat Hospital took place on Tuesday 1st December 2020.

Year 6 applicants who were unable to sit the banding test on 1st December 2020 due to COVID-19 related sickness, being in isolation, or for any other reason will not be disadvantaged.

We ask that instead, parents contact their daughter’s primary school requesting evidence, in the form of a school report  or statement, indicating which band best describes their daughter’s ability.

Band 1 – Above average ability

Band 2 – Average ability

Band 3 – Below average ability

Please then email with the evidence above.

Open Afternoons and Evenings as advertised in the Westminster Starting Secondary School Brochure have been cancelled due to public health restrictions.
