Do you have an entrance exam? My daughter is 10 (Year 6) and is shy and does not function well in interview or test situations.

The 11+ entrance and scholarship examination takes place in January of each year for entry for the following September. Westfield takes pride in bringing out the best in all our pupils, whatever their strengths and weaknesses. Please contact school to discuss the examination and interview for your daughter.

At what age do the children start to go on Round Square exchanges, conferences and visits?

Children can join in Round Square activities from Year 6 or 7 onwards and participate up to and including their A Level year.

For girls in Junior House there are activity camps, a summer residential for the whole of Key Stage 2 and the opportunity to apply for a place at a CISV (Children's International Summer Village) which are aimed at 11-12 year olds.

If my child moves between key years in her education e.g between GCSE and Sixth Form, does the term's notice still have to be in place even though the Sixth Form is a different part of the school?

Yes, a full term's notice in writing is required if your daughter will be leaving at the end of a year, whatever year group she is in.

When are the next scholarship examinations for 11+?

The 11+ entrance and scholarship examinations are on Wednesday 15th January 2020. It is not too late to register for this. Please contact the school office for further details 0191 255 3980 or email

Scholarships are awarded at 11+ entrance in Year 7, 13+ to start Year 9 and at Sixth Form entrance in Year 12. Scholarships are not offered to girls in Year 10 although it may be possible to apply for a bursary in cases of hardship.
