Year 7 Entrance Exams Application Form - Harrogate Ladies' College

Our Entrance Exam day for entry in Year 7 (U3) in September 2025, will take place on Saturday 18 January 2025.

Our Entrance Exams include Maths, Verbal and Non Verbal Reasoning sections, as well as an interview with either the Principal or one of our senior members of staff – we know that might all sound a bit daunting, but the girls always leave with smiles on their faces and have typically made some new friends along the way. 

Scholarship Assessments will take place on Thursday 16 and Friday 17 January 2025. 

Application Deadline

The application deadline for both entrance exams and scholarships is Monday 2nd December 2024.  If your daughter is unable to attend either the scholarship assessment days or the Entrance Examination Day, please contact the Admissions Team via or telephone 01423 537045 and we will arrange an alternative day.
