Open Afternoons

Five Open Afternoons will take place at the end of September, when staff will be available to answer questions, and tours of the School by pupils will be organised. The Open Afternoons begin at 2pm with an introductory talk and finish at approximately 3.30pm. These afternoons are for girls as well as parents. Although these afternoons are mainly dedicated to entry into Year 7, those interested in entry into Years 8, 9 and 10 are also welcome to attend. The Open Afternoons will take place on:

Monday 26th September 2011
Tuesday 27th September 2011
Wednesday 28th September 2011
Thursday 29th September 2011
Friday 30th September 2011


Application for admission into Year 7 involves two stages. Firstly, an application form must be sent to your Local Authority (LA). Secondly, a separate and different registration form must be sent to SWGS. This Supplementary Form can be obtained by contacting the school directly. The deadline for the SWGS Supplementary Form is 31st October 2011.
