We try to make the Admissions process as straightforward as possible. The Registrar, Mrs Christine Berry, is always happy to answer questions or discuss your plans either over the phone or in person. Please contact her via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 01865 459 204.
Pre-Prep Admission is Reception to Year 3 and Prep Admission is normally in Year 4 (8+) for boarders and day boys. We also accept some boys at 9+ and 10+, subject to availability. Prospective families are able to register their son at any point from birth, and are asked to return their completed registration form with the £75 registration fee. You will then be added to our mailing list to receive invitations to prospective family events and Open Mornings.
In the year before entry, your son will be invited to sit our entry test. While we are selective in whom we accept, this selection is not driven solely by academic ability. We aim to welcome a broad range of talents; our test is to ensure that everyone coming here will be able to access the teaching that we offer.
Arrange a Visit
You are welcome to visit the school at any time. Please contact Christine (above) if you would like to be shown round. We also hold several Pre-Prep and Prep Open Mornings each year, to which all prospective parents and their families are warmly invited to attend. These begin with coffee and a chance to meet our staff and other prospective parents. Visitors are then taken on guided tours by our current pupils themselves, and there are many opportunities to ask questions.
