Senior Taster Days for 2019 Admission

Year 7 places for September 2019 are now being provisionally allocated.  Parents and applicants are invited to visit the School and/or to apply to attend a Taster Day to initiate the application process.

Guest students will follow our Senior School timetable for their Taster Day.  Each will be allocated an existing student to accompany them throughout the day and have the opportunity to meet some of our subject specialist teachers and use our extensive facilities. These days can be arranged on most days of the week to suit guest students’ preferred subjects where possible.

  • Start time: 8.35am at Main Reception
  • Collection: 3.45pm at Main Reception

Lunch is provided. A full list of kit requirements and what to bring with you will be sent prior to the day, along with some simple forms to ensure that we can attend to any specific medical, dietary or other needs while the child is in our care.

Applicants are not required to complete an Entrance Exam as our focus in on optimising progress for each individual student in preparation for GCSE and A’ Level examinations, regardless of their starting point.  However, prior to joining our School, all applicants complete a computer aided assessment in order for us to begin to personalise the student’s education from the point that they join, and to identify any additional support services that may be required.  The assessment can be conducted during the Taster Day or organised on a separate day after any conditional Offer is made.
