We believe it’s very important for all prospective pupils to spend a day visiting St. Hugh’s prior to joining the school. This helps them become familiar with St Hugh’s, ensuring they already feel at home when they start with us.

We operate a non-selective entrance policy, meaning there are no entrance examinations and we welcome enrolments from students across a range of abilities. 

However, during their visit, prospective pupils are assessed through a combination of informal and/or formal testing. We do reserve the right to decline a place, if in the opinion of the Headmaster the pupil is unlikely to benefit from an education at St. Hugh’s or contribute positively to the school community.

At St Hugh’s, we’re very proud of our Scholarship scheme. We offer scholarships to pupils joining Year 7, which will be available for the duration of the child’s time at St. Hugh’s i.e. for Year 7 and for Year 8.

The scholarships are awarded on the basis of outstanding ability in academia, creative or performing arts (art, design, drama or music), or sport.
