Admission to Yesodey Hatorah Senior Girls School

Important changes for admission

In 2018 the governing body decided the school would offer places to pupils from Years 5 to Year 11 from September 2019 onward extending the school by two additional year groups. The normal point of entry to the school is Year 5.

In addition the PAN (Published Admission Number) decreased from 80 to 65.

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

Applications to join Year 5, 6 or 7 starting in September 2020 should be made using the dedicated application form below.

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

All applicants are required to provide proof of address and evidence of the child’s date of birth with their application.
