Our key entry stages are at ages 4, 7, 11 and 16 and entry at all ages is based on performance in a series of assessments or tests.
Sixth form applications may be received throughout the year. Students will be contacted by the school and asked to come with their parents for an assessment and Insight Days arranged in November, January or March.
Vacancies do arise from time to time for places in other year groups in both the Junior and Senior School. Please contact Admissions for more information.
1. Complete the application form
If you have requested a prospectus, you will also receive an Application Form.
Your completed form should be returned to the Admissions Officer at the appropriate school by post and accompanied with a £40 administration fee or payment can be accepted by direct transfer to Account number 91220653 sort code 60-15-29, please reference the payment with the school you are applying to, year of entry and your child's surname e.g. JNR/17/Kenworthy
Alternatively, you can complete an online application here.
2. Attend the appropriate assessment day
Pupils who have applied for a place will be invited for a day's visit to the school, which will include assessment.
At the Junior School a series of largely informal tests or assessments will be administered, appropriate to the age of the pupil. These will test numeracy, literacy and reasoning.
At the Senior School, pupils will be asked to sit papers in Maths, English, Science and a nominated Modern Foreign Language (for pupils wishing to gain entry into Year 9 and 10 only); a Verbal Reasoning Test may also be administered to Year 7 and Year 8 prospective pupils. Once an offer has been made prospective pupils will then be invited to spend a day in school prior to joining with their new form group.
Places at both schools will be offered only on receipt of a confidential report from the applicant's current school.
