Entrance Procedure

entrance procedure
pre-preparatory Department (Reception to Year 2)

On receipt of your Registration Form and payment we will be able to give an immediate indication of the likelihood of a place being available in Pre-prep.  For those children joining Reception in September, we offer a number of informal events where the children can familiarise themselves with their new classroom and get to know their teacher.

For children who have already started school elsewhere and are joining the Pre-preparatory Department in Year 1 or Year 2, we will arrange for them to come and spend a morning in school prior to their move.

entrance procedure
Junior School (Years 3 to 6)

Places in the junior school are offered subject to satisfactory performance in the entrance tests.  Upon receipt of your registration form and payment, we will contact you regarding a gentle induction programme of visits to the school which are arranged throughout the school year, to allow your child to become familiar with the school and some of the staff.  This allows them to dispel the inevitable nerves associated with new surroundings and to do their best when they sit the tests on Entrance Day in February.   

For those families who have not registered in time for Entrance Day, individual examinations can be arranged at a mutually convenient time, subject to places still being available.
