Viewing the School and Admissions

Interested parents are cordially invited to contact the school to make an appointment to view and discuss, in depth, the information outlined in this pack and enquire into any other matter related to the education of their children. A visit whilst the school is in operation is preferable as it illustrates the happy, caring, family atmosphere which pervades the school.

After this initial contact, a suitable time is arranged for the child to visit the school to meet the Headmaster and, where appropriate, to sit the relevant tests. Experience has shown that this personal assessment is superior to a formal examination day as children are less likely to suffer from ‘nerves’ and candidates are more comfortable with their parents close to hand in a relaxed atmosphere.

Acceptance is not entirely based upon the test results as considerable emphasis is placed on the personal interview and assessed potential of each individual.

Places are then offered at the discretion of the Headmaster. The registration of a child’s name requires the payment of a non refundable bond of £200.

Whilst appreciating that personal and family circumstances occasionally change, the offer of a place is made on the understanding that children are committed to the school for the duration of the department. Thus children entering the Nursery and Preparatory classes are expected to remain until eleven years of age. Similarly pupils entering the Senior Department are expected to proceed through to the end of Year 11. 

We look forward to hearing from you. The next stage of enquiry is to contact the school secretary in the main school to arrange a mutually convenient appointment.
