Close up of junior school student

Our process of selection and admissions is designed to confirm that children have the potential to cope with our fast-paced, challenging academic curriculum.

Any process of assessment can seem daunting, therefore every attempt is made to ensure that both parents and children are relaxed and put at ease from the moment an application is made. We have a dedicated Head of Admissions, Ali Perry, who is there to offer all the advice, information and guidance you may need along the way.

We are well aware that there can be significant differences in the educational experiences of children and we take that into account during our assessment process. We are not looking for ready-made geniuses! We want you to find the right school for your child, therefore we look for evidence of what applicants may achieve given the exciting opportunities we offer them here.
