Joining Elizabeth College

Elizabeth College is an HMC school for girls and boys aged 11 to 18 and is the Upper section of our school. Entry points to Elizabeth College include Year 7 and Sixth Form into Year 12. Very occasionally places are available in other years, but these are typically subject to a waiting list.

For any questions on joining Elizabeth College please contact the Registrar Tel: (01481) 726544 or E-mail:


The first step in the process for any admission is to complete and return the Registration Form and pay a registration fee. Further details can be found on our admissions page here. Elizabeth College is a very popular school and we encourage families to make their application to Year 7 early, to avoid disappointment.


Open Day is undoubtedly the best way to experience everything Elizabeth College can offer. It is the perfect way to see what life is like at our lively, academically stretching, supportive, broadening and enjoyable school.

Elizabeth College Upper School Open Day
Date: 13 April 2024 

Families considering entry in 2025 and beyond are especially welcome.

College students will lead personalised tours of the school and every department is open. There are activities, demonstrations and displays throughout the campus and students and staff will be on-hand to answer any questions about life at Elizabeth College. Refreshments will be served.


The Elizabeth College Entrance Assessment is in October and, subject to availability of places, a second sitting of the entrance assessment for entry to Year 7 each September may be held during Lent Term. The assessment takes the form of a suite of online tests that assess a candidate’s reasoning (thinking) abilities in four key areas of educational development and academic attainment: verbal, non-verbal, numerical and spatial.

These tests provide a standardised measure of cognitive reasoning ability, without reference to curriculum-based material and regardless of previous achievements, with the basic aim of ensuring candidates will be able to cope with the College’s curriculum. It should be noted that there is no expectation that candidates will revise or prepare specifically for the assessment.

Registrations for September 2024 are now closed.

The Year 7 Entrance Assessment for entry into Elizabeth College in September 2024 is on the 7th October 2023.
