General Information

The school requires that on entry children should be able to communicate in English at a level appropriate to their age and development.

Children of other nationalities seeking a British education are welcome to apply. Where English is not a child’s first language it will be necessary for the school to assess the child’s ability in English. In addition, children transferring from different educational systems will need a placement assessment as part of the assessment procedure, and acceptance will depend on the result.

The academic year runs from September 1st to August 31st of each calendar year.

Applications for Nursery are considered, provided a child is three years of age before the start of the academic year. It should be noted that the school has only limited space in Nursery.

Placement of pupils from Foundation Stage 2 to Year 10 matches the National Curriculum of England and Wales cohorts.

Any questions, please contact the Admissions and Registration department at: 037678636.
