Admissions to Year 7 in September 2017
The menu below will give you links to the necessary information and forms that you need in order to apply for entry into Year 7 at Virgo Fidelis Convent Senior School in September 2017. We accept 120 girls into Year 7. Priority is given to Catholic girls, but as an inclusive school we welcome applications from all faiths.
You must also complete a paper form or apply online in the borough in which you live. This is part of the common application process that every Year 6 pupil must follow. You may have already received information from your borough and/or primary school. If not, please contact them immediately.
You can name up to six schools that you would like to apply to, in order of preference. If you name Virgo Fidelis Convent Senior School as one of your preferred schools, you must also complete our supplementary information form in order to be considered for a place. This is because, as a Catholic school, we take religious practice into account when deciding whether you receive an offer of a place from us. Our admissions officer will be delighted to help you with this.
