11 Plus (11+) Admissions | Park School for Girls, Ilford


To commence the admissions process, you and your daughter should attend Park School’s Open Day events. These will provide you with the opportunity to meet with staff and students, learn more about our academic curriculum and hear from the Head. Open Days can be booked through the Admissions Office.


Next, you will be asked to complete a registration form and pay a registration fee of £80, after which your daughter will be invited to take the school’s entrance examination and participate in a taster session with the year group she will be joining. 


The entrance assessment is held in November of the year preceding entry. Successful 11+ candidates will receive an offer of a place, to be accepted with a payment of a £1,000 deposit.


To parents who struggle with paying the fees, the school provides means-tested financial support in the form of Assisted Places, valued at up to 25% of fees. These awards are reviewed annually and may increase/decrease in value, subject to changes in your financial circumstances.
