General Overview

Children from all nationalities are welcome to apply. All children applying for a place from Year 3 upwards, including those with siblings already in the school, will be required to sit an entrance test in English and Mathematics. Applicants who achieve a reasonable grade in the test will be offered a place.

If a child does not achieve the required standard the school can reassess at a later date; suggest an enhanced curriculum including extra support in English, or adapt the level of entry (the child´s year group). This is at the school’s discretion.

Applications are considered for the Academic Year in which they apply.

If your application is for more than one child, each child will be considered individually based on their own merits.

Siblings

Siblings of current students are given priority if the year group is not at full capacity. Sibling discounts are also available.

In Year Applications

While the school year starts in September, we do accept children throughout the year depending on availability of spaces..
