Admissions Policy

Primary and secondary admissions are accepted on an ongoing basis. If you wish to enrol your child into EYFS, you may apply for a place in the academic term after your child turns 3.

Reception Class Admissions

The admission process for entry into our EYFS class is based:

  • A collaborative parent/guardian and child initial interview
  • A ‘whole’ child assessment conducted by our admissions team
  • A reference from the child’s present school/nursery

We have a whole-hearted, professional approach and offer school places on the basis of building strong home-school partnerships with every family.

Admissions into Primary and Secondary Years

The admissions policy for entry into Primary and Secondary year groups is based on:

  • An entrance examination aligned to age-related expectations in core subjects (Literacy and Numeracy at Primary, English, Mathematics and Science at Secondary)
  • A written reference from the student’s present school and a pupil  interview carried out during the examination procedure
  • An interview with prospective student’s parents
