Frequently asked admissions questions
Most admissions queries should be answered below, however, if you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact the school office.

At what age can my child join the school?

The majority of pupils join us in either Year R or in Year 7.  However, if we have availability, we are happy to accept pupils into other year groups.

Will my child have to pass an examination to be accepted for a place?

We are a non selective school but do ask that all prospective pupils, other than those for year R, come for a taster day.  Prospective Year R pupils are invited to a number of events during the summer term before starting in September.

How do I apply for a place?

We highly recommend that you visit the school prior to making a formal application for a place. This might be at one of our Open Mornings, or alternatively by making an appointment to see the Headteacher.  To request a prospectus please follow the link at the bottom of this page.

Once you have visited us and met with the Headteacher, the next stage is arrange a taster day or days. An application is then required and involves the completion of an application form and making a payment of the £50 application fee.

If your child is accepted into the school a £1000 deposit is payable either six months before your child is due to start or, for casual admissions, as soon as the place is agreed.

Is transport available to and from school?

We do not currently offer transport to and from school but are happy to help parents contact each other for lift shares.

Is there before and after school provision?

We have wrap around care provided onsite but run independently of the school – contact details can be obtained from the school office.
