Visiting the School
Prospective parents are strongly encouraged to visit to the School. They will meet the Registrar and receive a tour of the School with a current pupil. Please contact the Admissions Office: firstname.lastname@example.org
Open Days are held on a Saturday morning in each of the three terms.
The first step in the admissions process is to Register and submit the online Registration Form along with a non-returnable registration fee of £200. This can be completed for pupils of any age and parents will receive regular updates to keep them informed about the School.
Conditional Offer of a place
Approximately two and a half years ahead of entry, the Registrar will contact the pupil’s current school to request a formal reference. On receipt of a positive reference, the Registrar will write to parents with a formal offer of a place, subject to the usual Common Entrance requirements.
It is quite deliberate policy not to add pressure on young pupils by operating a Pre-test in Year 7, so the reference is of significant importance in the Admissions procedure.
Confirmation of a Place
A place is confirmed through the payment of a deposit.
Visiting the Houses
On payment of a deposit, parents can revisit the School with their son and/or daughter to meet several Housemasters/Housemistresses at their respective Houses. A preference for a particular House may then be expressed, but the Admissions Department will always wish to provide each House with a balanced intake in terms of pupils’ talents and backgrounds.
Academic Scholarship Examinations are held at the School early in the Summer term prior to September entry.
The Common Entrance Examination is taken at the pupils’ current schools in the middle part of the Summer term prior to September entry.
