Admissions Process

Thank you for considering us as your child’s future school! Find out everything you need to know about the admissions journey

We are here to help you from your initial enquiry, through the admissions process, right up to the final enrolment of your child in our school.

The admissions process is simple and transparent and outlined in brief below. We do not have a catchment area and we welcome children of mixed abilities and many talents. We are non-selective.

You will be guided every step of the way by our experienced and personable Admissions Officer. Children are welcome to join us at any time during the school year and into any year group, subject to a place being available.

Please complete the enquiry form in order to arrange a visit and we shall be in touch. We look forward to hearing from you.

Admissions Process

Step 1

Contact the Enquiries Department (via website, email or telephone) for an initial conversation about your child and to check availability in the relevant year group.

Step 2

Arrange a visit to school for a personal guided tour by our Admissions Officer or attend one of our Open Mornings. Meet our staff, see the school in session and experience the atmosphere.

Step 3

Complete the Application Form and submit your child’s most recent school report.

Step 4

Depending on your child’s age, we will arrange a meeting with the Head of the relevant department, who will assess their level of English and ability and provide you with feedback.

Step 5

If successful and subject to availability, we will make a time-limited formal offer of a place for your child to join us.

If there are no spaces in the year group you require, we will add your child’s name to our waiting list and will contact you when a place becomes available.

Step 6

If you accept the offer, you will then be requested to complete the School Admissions Booklet, submit all the admission documentation and pay the matriculation fee in order to secure your child’s admission.
