What is the current admissions procedure?

Admission to Year 7 is by an entrance examination taken in September of the previous year (late tests are available for students relocating to the area after the date of the entrance examination). 150 places are available for the highest ranking candidates, in accordance with parental preferences. Students who qualify but do not get offered a place may be placed on an indicated interest register. If any places become available, they are filled from this list. Where several girls achieve the same standard, the following criteria are used to determine the order of offers: i) students from families entitled to claim Free School Meals at the time of the test, ii) geographical proximity to the school measured in a straight line from the place of residence. For further details concerning admissions, please refer to the menu on the left.

Special arrangements can be made for girls under the normal age of transfer - further details are available from the school. Entries to years other than Year 7 can be considered if places are available. Entry to Stroud High School Sixth Form is open to any student who achieves the relevant standards.

Our Open Mornings will take place on Friday 26 April and Friday 28 June 2019 from 9.15am - 12noon. There is no need to book a place.

What transport is available?

Although transport has previously been provided for students by the Local Authority, this has not been the case since September 2012 for new entrants to Stroud High, unless students live over 3 miles from the school, and it is their nearest secondary. Further information about this is available under the School Information menu - 'Transport to School'. Parent groups exist sharing transport arrangements; it is expected that this will develop with the facilitation and support of the school.
