Entry to the Senior School (Years 7-13) is at 11 or 13.

Sixth Form
St Gabriel’s Sixth Form (Year 12 & Year 13) welcomes applications from girls who have attended other schools.

Entry at Other Times
Whilst most pupils join the school at the beginning of Sandleford, the Junior School,  Senior School or Sixth Form, St Gabriel’s accepts pupils at other stages in their education depending on availability of places.

Ability Profile
From Year 1, St Gabriel’s is selective, but not fiercely so.  Whilst our examination results and university entrances are the bedrock of our existence, our strength lies in the provision of an excellent all-round education.   It is possible for St Gabriel’s pupils to enjoy success and gain the respect of others in a large number of ways.

Our pupils are not judged by the same narrow criterion of academic achievement. Confidence gained in one skill spreads to others so that our pupils grow to feel capable and successful.

Consequently, Junior Assessments and Senior School entrance examinations identify children of good average ability and above and places are offered to those who are able to thrive in our environment.

Visitors to St Gabriel's quickly recognise that this is no ordinary school. Parents are always impressed by the sense of purpose and enthusiasm of the talented, committed staff and the confidence of the extremely happy pupils. We offer girls the opportunity for a seamless journey from Nursery through to Sixth Form, with our boys leaving us at the age of 11 for their senior schools.
