LC3 Boarders

Traditional terminology: 13+
College terminology: LC3
UK National Curriculum terminology: Year 9
Usual age range on enrolment: 12 years 8 months – 14 years 0 months

As a LC3 (13+ / Year 9) boarder, your daughter will be joining College at the same time as about 45 other girls, most of who will be boarders. She will join the boarding and day girls from our younger intakes to form a year group of about 120 girls.

At 13+, 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.

You will find registration and exam forms, together with key dates for entry, on our 13+ entry page
