Admissions Process

How to Apply  

For further information on booking a tour of the school, please complete our enquiry form 

Prospective pupils may be registered for admission at any time after birth. Registrations should ideally be received at least a full calendar year preceding the desired date of admission to benefit from all communications relating to the next admissions cycle. 

You can register by completing the UK registration form that is included with the admissions pack, and sending this along with a registration fee of £25 to: 

Mrs Sharon McEwan, Registrar 

Telephone: +44 (0)1482 657016

A non-returnable registration fee (£25) is payable on submission of an application. Please ensure the school is told at the application stage if your child has a disability or particular need to that we can properly assess his/her requirements. Assessments from professionals such as Educational Psychologists should be provided at this stage. 

Assessment 

All pupils wishing to enter the school from Year 4 are required to sit an entrance assessment. An acceptable standard must be achieved in each test for a place to be offered. Admission is also based on a report from their current school. 

If a pupil falls slightly short of the above criteria a place may still be offered at the discretion of the Headmistress following an informal interview. 

The main assessment tests for entry into the School each September will take place: 

  • in the preceding January prior to September entry to the Senior School 

  • in February for entry into the Prep School.

Acceptance of Places 

Once a place is offered, we ask for prompt acceptance. Acceptance comprises the payment of a refundable deposit (£100) and the return of the School’s Form of Acceptance. This document sets out the primary contract with the School and the financial obligations regarding notice and withdrawal, to which parents are required to agree. 

All parents with legal responsibility must sign these documents. Your child cannot start at the School until this process is completed.
