Occasional places

Entry into non-standard years or mid-year is by assessment and parental interview. We may also request a copy of your child’s most recent school report from their current school. If a place is not immediately available, parents may be offered the opportunity to join a waiting list.

Moving from Prep School to Senior School

It is expected that the majority of pupils who enter our Prep School will automatically progress through each stage and transition into our Senior School. For this to be the case, pupils need to demonstrate that they have sufficient ability to cope with the demands of the curriculum at each next stage, and have the skills and maturity to do so successfully. In the transition from Prep to Senior, all pupils will sit an academic assessment, the results of which will assist in the smooth transfer from Year 6 into Year 7. Guidance will be provided to parents about the transition process from Prep to Senior.

Our Prep School maintains excellent relationships with other local senior schools in both independent and maintained sectors, and each child will receive the full support of the School as they leave the Prep aged 11, wherever they choose to begin the next stage of their education.
