Entry Points

Pupils can be admitted at any age, subject to the availability of places but most enter aged 3 or 7.  The decision on whether or not to accept an external pupil into the Preparatory Department is taken after a preliminary visit.

Our class sizes grow to between 20 and 22 in the Junior Department.  External pupils looking for a place in the Junior Department are required to attend a taster day, where they will be asked to do some informal English and Maths assessments.  Before any child can be considered for entry to the school, both parents must complete an application form below and return it to the Headmaster together with the current registration and assessment fee.
