Admission to Yesodey Hatorah Senior Girls School

Important changes for admission from 2019

The governing body of Yesodey Hatorah Senior Girls School has decided that from September 2019 onward the school will open Years 5 and 6 classes in addition to Year 7-11. From September 2019 the normal point of entry to the school will be Year 5.

In addition the PAN (Published Admission Number) will decrease to 65.

These changes were subject to public consultation. Further information can be obtained from the school. The school’s admission arrangements for 2019/20 were revised to reflect these changes.

Additional information

In order for an application to be prioritised within the admissions criteria on the grounds of a Charedi Jewish faith, parents must submit a supplementary information form proving their commitment to the faith. The form is available from the school and will be included with the application form.  Any disputes as to whether a child is Charedi will be settled by reference to the Rabbinate of the Union of Orthodox Hebrew Congregations.  Offers will be determined solely by the governing body according to the criteria outlined in the determined admission arrangements above. 

All applicants are required to provide proof of address and evidence of the child’s date of birth with their application.  In addition applicants for Year 6 and 7 must also complete Part 2 of the application form and have it signed by their child’s current school at the time of application.
