To make sure every student receives the right support, we invite each child to sit an age-appropriate assessment.

Children joining us in the early years come into school for an in-class observation, while prospective primary students have a friendly one-on-one chat with a member of our senior academic team.

If your child is joining us in secondary, we’ll invite them to discuss their academic records and any preferences or requirements with our senior leadership team. Following enrolment, students will undertake base line assessments to ensure they are fully supported in their academic pathways.

Our admissions team will guide you through the process and answer any questions.
