We want your application process to be clear and easy so we provided you with step by step instructions below. However, if you have any questions, please contact our admissions team on 01749 834 441 / [email protected], and we’ll be happy to help.
We accept applications year-round for entrance when space permits, and students can enter the school at different levels. We look forward to working with you through the application process.
Simply contact admissions, and we’ll send you information relevant for your family.
Please join us for an Open Day with a student-led tour of the school, an opportunity to meet teachers and more.
We also would be happy to arrange an individual visit if you can’t make an Open Day or if you just can’t wait! Please contact our admissions team if you’re interested, and we’ll find a time that works for you.
To register, fill in this Registration Form and return it with the registration fee to our admissions team. If you’re interested in applying for one of our scholarships, you will also need to return the relevant form with the registration form. See our Scholarships Section for details. Please see our Financial Assistance Section for details on how to apply for a bursary.
Once you have registered, we will invite any students currently in Year 9 or below to take an assessment test and have a short interview, either individually or in groups. We do this testing the last Saturday of January each year. Individual assessment days may be scheduled after this date.
We will also send details to invite relevant students to attend a scholarship assessment day.
We usually welcome children during the term after their third birthday, and we help them to adjust to nursery life over two weeks before they start their full sessions. Typically, children join us for at least three sessions a week and eventually build up to a full week, if desired, as they get older.
Please contact us on 01749 834213 to book a free taster session or visit. We recommend you contact us well before your child’s third birthday to ensure we have availability.
Whilst pupils normally start in the Michaelmas Term, we often have vacancies available at other times of the year. We will ask your child to do an assessment exercise. We will need a satisfactory reference from the Head of their current school (where applicable).
We hold assessment tests throughout the year, typically on a visit or taster day. Please remember you have to register before your child can take part. For prep school candidates, we mark Common Entrance 13+ Examination; however it is not a requirement for entry and all candidates sit our own assessment tests. We do not provide past papers.
We will need a satisfactory reference from the Head of their current school.
Pupils enter the Upper School to begin the two-year GCSE course. Candidates will be interviewed and will need a satisfactory reference from the Head of their current school.
For pupils going into Year 10, we hold assessment tests throughout the year. Please remember you have to register before your child can take part.
Candidates will have an initial interview with the Head or a member of the Senior Team. They will need a satisfactory report from the Head of their current school. They will be expected to secure at least six grade C passes at GCSE level, with B grade or above in the subjects to be studied at AS level where relevant. Exceptions to this made be made for those following a Specialist Music course.
