Music Scholarship - Assessment
At Year 7 (11+), girls must take the general entrance examination and are then required to attend a music audition conducted by the music department to qualify. There is much competition for the Music scholarship and we expect girls to have reached a standard of Grade 5 as a minimum.
Girls undertake a written paper to include listening tests and theory questions. This written paper is followed by practical tests to include a performance of one piece.
Girls are encouraged to bring their own accompanist but if this is not possible one will be provided - in which case, the necessary music for the school's accompanist must be brought along on the day of the main entrance exam.
How to apply
Parents who wish their daughter to be considered for a music scholarship must fill in an application form available from the Admissions office. This form will be sent to you on receipt of your registration form.
