FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • Do you have a place for my child?
    We certainly hope so! The best thing to do is contact our admissions team. They’ll let you know whether we have places available now and give you an estimate of future availability.
  • Will my child have to sit an entrance exam?
    No, there isn’t an entrance exam. However, every student who joins us in Year 7 or above needs to either sit a language assessment (non-native English speakers) or a maths and literature assessment (native English speakers). Students who want to join our International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) in Year 12 need to have passed their IGCSE exams (or equivalent).
  • Do you place a child according to their age?

    We place students in the appropriate year group based on their age, in line with the UK education system. This means children aged five (before the academic year starts) join us in Year 1, children aged six join us in Year 2, and so on.

    Children enrolling on our Czech bilingual programme are expected to start in Year 1. This is the equivalent of a 'preparatory class' in the Czech system.

    If your child is joining us from a different educational system, we’ll make a recommendation based on the information you provide, including recent school reports. Decisions are based on what we believe to be in the best interests of each child.

  • My child doesn't speak much English. Will they be OK?
    Yes! Our expert English as an Additional Language (EAL) team will support your child. It’s not possible to say how long it’ll take before your child is proficient, as it can be anything from a few weeks to many months.
  • We’re a Czech family with a primary-aged child. Is the Czech bilingual programme the best option for us?
    There isn't a right or wrong answer to this question. All the children on our bilingual programme are Czech; however, there are also Czech students who follow our standard primary curriculum. It depends how you want your child to be educated. Our admissions team and Head of Primary can talk you through your options.
  • When and how do I buy school uniforms?
    Our admissions team will email you all the details once we’ve received your application. 
  • Do you run a bus service?
    Yes, we provide a safe and efficient bus service. Please see our transport page for more information.
