Choosing the right school is one of the most important decisions you will make. The best way to learn about St Margaret's and its unique ethos is to visit us in person. We make it our priority to ensure your family's admissions experience is welcoming and individualised, and our staff will assist you in making the process of entry to St Margaret's as easy as possible. Please do contact us to arrange a visit or simply to have a chat, so that you can find out more about what St Margaret's can offer your daughter.


Entry to St Margaret’s for all ages is by assessment or is based upon formal examination results and interview with the Head.

All children are required to be registered before attending a taster day at St Margaret’s School or before being assessed for a place. Please complete and return the registration form with the (non-returnable) registration fee of £50. Registration forms may be found in the prospectus pack or can be downloaded from the website.

We advise you to register as soon as you have decided upon St Margaret’s as a choice of school.
