Overview

 

JAGS is the oldest independent girls’ school in Greater London, striving for academic excellence, diversity, humanity and integrity.

 

Sport is played to a high level and the arts ‘are woven into the fabric of JAGS’, with girls regularly performing in competitions and concerts both in London and throughout Europe. A wide extra-curricular programme is designed to give girls the opportunity to develop new skills, gain experience of leadership, help and support one another, and have fun.

 

Of particular interest is the school’s speaker programme, which welcomes an impressive range of speakers who contribute much to the school’s learning. Specialists from a range of fields, including academic and professional backgrounds, spend time sharing their knowledge with girls across all year groups.

Online registration – click here for UK-based registrations and here if you are based overseas.

 

Entrance Exams

 

The 11+ process begins with candidates being invited to a pre-selection assessment morning in the autumn term.  The aim is to seek a clearer view of a candidate’s potential, both on a one-on-one basis and in a group setting, whilst providing girls with a taster day at JAGS and an opportunity to meet fellow applicants.

 

Girls are divided into small groups to solve puzzles; given a taster lesson; and asked to complete an online test to measure verbal, non-verbal and numerical reasoning skills (age-standardised).

 

Those who perform well at the pre-assessment selection will be called back to sit papers in maths (45mins) and English (1hr). Both papers are based on the assumption that candidates have reached at least Level 5 of the National Curriculum in these subjects.

 

The maths syllabus can be downloaded here.
