LC1 Boarders

Traditional terminology: 11+
College terminology: LC1
UK National Curriculum terminology: Year 7
Usual age range on enrolment: 10 years 8 months – 12 years 0 months

As a LC1 boarder, your daughter will be one of around 45 boarders and 25 day girls who join College at our youngest stage. New girls come from all over the UK, from Europe and elsewhere in the world. 

At 11+, boarders join one of six junior boarding houses which are home to girls aged 11 - 16. Here your daughter will be one of approximately 60 - 65 girls, looked after by a dedicated pastoral House team led by a Housemistress who is ably supported by her Deputy. Junior Housemistresses are non-teaching to allow them to focus on the welfare and happiness of the girls in their houses but they make valuable contributions to both the Wellbeing programme at College and the assessment of candidates for entry.
