  • When can my child start?
    Your child can join us at any time during the academic year, provided we have places available.
  • How does the process differ if my company is paying the tuition fees?
    If your company is paying your child’s fees, our admissions and finance teams are happy to deal with them directly. Please let us know as early as possible in the application process.

    You’ll need to pay our application fee after you’ve accepted our written offer of a place.
