Visits to the Schools can be arranged at your convenience throughout the year, as long as government guidance will allow. However, if you are unable to visit we would be delighted to discuss your individual needs and answer your questions, over the phone or on a video call.
For entry into Year 7-10 for September 2021, we will carry out most assessments remotely in invigilated examinations sessions. To enter your child for our entrance examination, please fill in and return our application form. If you apply later than January, we will carry out assessments when you apply.
For Year 12 entry, all applicants will have an interview with a member of staff and will need to submit predicted GCSE grades. Based on this a conditional offer may be made and confirmed in August after the results have been published.
