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.
External pupils wanting to join the Junior Department are required to take selective tests in March. Before any child can be considered for entry to the school, both parents must complete an application form and return it to the Headmaster together with the current registration and assessment fee. All prospective parents must accept that permission will not be granted for pupils to be ‘on holiday’ during term time.
