Overview:

 

The junior school proudly creates a supportive ‘family’ atmosphere, with an ethos on academic excellence in a stimulating environment. Standards are understandably high in all areas and girls generally work in advance of their chronological age. The school aims to nurture independence following a four ‘R’ framework, ‘asking girls to be ready, resourceful, resilient and reflective in their approach to learning’.

 

Opportunities in music and extra curricular activities are plentiful. Sport plays an important role in the life of the school, with girls enjoying significant achievement at both regional and national level in netball, swimming and gymnastics. Facilities include a 25m heated pool on site.

 

Parents find the breakfast club from 7.30am and tea and prep club until 6.00pm very helpful. This is available at an additional cost.

 

Admissions Process for Lady Eleanor Holles Junior School at Seven Plus

 

LEH Junior School accepts 48 girls at 7 plus. Girls join from a selection of both maintained and independent schools.

 

Applications & Registration:

 

Applications are accepted in the year prior to proposed entry. The deadline for 7+ entry to LEH Junior School is in December prior to the year of entry.

 

Registration fee: £100

 

You should also provide two passport size photographs of your daughter and enclose these with your application.

 

Open Days/Visits:

 

The Junior School open morning takes place in October, 10am – 12noon. Parents and their daughters will be able to tour the school, speak to members of staff and current pupils and take part in fun activities. You do not need to pre book.

 

It is also possible for prospective parents to meet with the Head of the Junior School at set times during the Autumn term. If you would like to see the head, this must be booked in advance by contacting the registrar: Registrar@lehs.org.uk

 

Entrance Exams:

 

For entry at 7+ to LEH Junior School, girls will be asked to complete 7 plus exam papers in maths and English (comprehension and creative writing) and may be invited to attend an interview and/or activity session which will involve group activities to assess learning potential. Unlike many schools, a report from a girl’s current school is not routinely sought.

 

The 7+ exam takes place in January of the year of entry.

Destination Schools at 11+:

 

Although it is states in the LEH prospectus that most girls progress to the Senior School without the need to take the school’s 11+ exam, we felt it useful to clarify the situation by quoting directly from their separate admissions procedure for internal candidates:

 

‘In Lower II, each girl’s performance and attitude during her time in the Junior Department will be reviewed, to assess whether she is already clearly suitable as a candidate for entry to the Senior Department, able to meet the academic standard required and able to benefit from and contribute to its ethos and activities….

 

…As a result of this assessment, at the end of Lower II a girl may be offered a guaranteed place in the Senior Department, without the need to take the 11+ test or to be interviewed. Alternatively, if she is not already clearly a suitable candidate for entry to the Senior Department, she will not be offered a guaranteed place. If this is the case, her parents may still enter her for the Senior Department through the 11+ test and interview process arranged for external candidates. She will, unlike external applicants, however, be guaranteed an interview…

 

…Girls who join the school in the Spring Term of Lower II or later will be required to follow the procedure for external candidates.’

 

Scholarships and Bursaries:

 

LEH Junior School does not offer scholarships and bursaries at 7 plus.
