This year, our 11+ 2023 Entrance and Scholarship Exam will be held on Saturday 12th November 2022. The PGHS Registration Form to sit the Exams must be completed by Monday 31st October 2022.

Examination Detail:

For 11+ entry, candidates sit examinations in English, Mathematics and Reasoning, which are designed for their age group. The Mathematics, English (Comprehension) and Reasoning (NVR and VR) assessments are done via the ISEB Common Pre-test.  In addition, pupils will sit a traditional written paper in Creative Writing. Familiarisation tests for the ISEB are available online here  and more general information can be found here.  Parents/guardians are required to register their daughters online directly with ISEB, in addition to completing the PGHS registration form. Families are encouraged to sign up to the ISEB mailing list, which can be done here. Online registration for the ISEB Common Pre-test will open in September.

Candidates who show promise in these academic tests are then invited for interview. The dates by which results will be communicated to families and the closing date for acceptances will be available from the School Office.
