There are many ways to visit the School, by attending one of our Open Days or by arranging an individual visit. Some families like to do both. Once you have visited us and are ready to register your child, then all it takes are a few simple steps.
You can register online or by post, any time and as early as you wish up to the end of December. After this time, please call the School Secretary prior to registration. Here is our registration process:
Make an appointment to visit the school. This is not a requirement but many parents wish to visit.
Visit the School and meet the Headmaster.
Register your child by completing the registration form and pay the non-returnable registration fee of £100. This can be done online or by post.
Once you have registered you will be invited to attend our Open Day in the Michaelmas Term. You will also be asked to bring your child to an Assessment Day to sit the Entrance Test in the February of the year you intend your child to join.
All prospective pupils are required to sit assessments in English and Mathematics, in the February of the year they wish to join the school. These tests are based on the appropriate age-related topics in the National Curriculum, which the children should have covered at school, and therefore no special practice papers are necessary. All the Entrance Tests are taken in small groups, in an informal environment where every effort is made to put the children at ease and make the experience enjoyable. More information about the types of questions which may be asked is given in the 'Entrance Examination Information' PDF below.
Our assessment dates for next year are:
