Admissions Criteria

We find that children thrive best in their correct class age groups. Our differentiated teaching accommodates students who need support and stretches those who are more able.

  • Children will be assessed by attending an observational visit to the classroom.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities

We have a dedicated team of learning support specialists who can provide for a range of needs. The provision is limited, however. If your child has social, emotional, academic, physical, developmental or behavioural challenges, you need to discuss this with us fully at the application stage. We may not have the capacity to cater for your child and it is better to know this before proceeding.
