We’re here to help you with your application every step of the way.

We recommend you initially visit our School at an open event or a personal visit where we can talk you through the details in person.

Admission is based upon the successful completion of the Entrance Assessment and suitable report from your child’s current school for Senior School, or Assessment for Junior School.

Entrance assessments and scholarship trials usually take place in December, following application by mid November. Dates vary each year, please check the latest dates for Primary School, Senior School and Sixth Form.

While this is the recommended process for September starts, assessment and admission at other times within the academic year is possible. Please contact the Registrar for more information.
