Our policy throughout the admissions process is to allocate the appropriate placement for the candidate so that he/she may benefit fully from the education we offer. 

 

The procedure for admission to the school varies according to the age of the candidate:

 

Infant Department

Foundation Stage (age 3 to 5)

Pupils applying for entry to the Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception) are required to come to the first visit with their parents and to bring past school reports (if applicable). Children applying for Nursery and Reception places are not required to have any prior knowledge of English.

 

Key Stage 1 (age 5 to 7)

For entry into Year 1 and Year 2, pupils are assessed by the Head of Primary. For entry into Year 3, children will take tests in Non Verbal Reasoning, Maths and Writing. Applicants for both year groups will be asked to provide past school reports. At this age they will be expected to know how to read and write in English.

Pupils with little or no prior knowledge of English must agree to a programme of EAL, as recommended by the school, and parents should expect to be liable for the incurred costs. The duration of the EAL course will be decided by the school.

Key Stage 1 (age 8)

Pupils should have a good command of spoken and written English. New pupils applying for entry to the school take entrance tests in Mathematics / Non-verbal reasoning and English. Their past school reports are also taken into consideration. Parents should complete and return the official  application form to be requested from the school and include all the necessary information.

If a place is available, an appointment will be made for parents to visit the school and for their child to see the Head of Primary or Deputy Head of Primary for a personal interview.

Provided the previous school reports and evaluations are satisfactory, a place will be offered and official documentation should be supplied.
