Pre-School and Prep School entry

 

Following a tour of the Pre-School department and Prep School, pupils will be invited to spend a morning in our Pre-School or a whole day in the Prep School.  Our admissions process commences with the completion of the school registration form.

Applications are processed throughout the year, children entering our Pre-School must be 2 ½ years old.

Year 7-10 entry (Age 11-15)

 

Pupils applying for places into Years 7-10 are expected to sit our entrance examination. All candidates sit three papers: Literacy, Numeracy and Non-Verbal Reasoning.

In addition, they will meet with a member of staff for an informal discussion, and their current school will be asked to provide a satisfactory reference and academic report.

Applications for the entrance examination should be submitted to us by early January. The entrance examinations are held in late January/early February.

We also accept late applications for entry into Year 7 – 10 throughout the year, subject to availability. In these circumstances, candidates will still be required to sit the Entrance examination.

Sixth Form entry (Ages 16-17)

 

Applications for entry into the Sixth Form are accepted throughout the year.

An offer of a place in the Sixth Form will usually be conditional on the candidate achieving at least five Grade 5s (or equivalent) and getting a Grade 6 in a subject to study at the Sixth Form.

All candidates are expected to meet with a member of staff for an informal interview and will be asked to produce a satisfactory school report and a school reference.
