The ideal way to see the College and meet us is at one of our Open Mornings.
Stage 2 - Registration
It is easy to register for a Year 9 place for your child - please contact our admissions team.
We recommend that you register as soon as possible.
References will be requested from prep school heads in November of Year 6.
Stage 3 - Assessments and scholarships
Children registering for a place in Year 9 will be asked to sit ISEB pre-tests in their own prep school between 1st October and 1st December of Year 6.
Children successful at this stage will then be invited to an Orientation Day on 9th February 2024. This involves assessments and interviews, but most importantly will give your child a chance to get to know the College through a day of exciting lessons and activities.
We offer a mix of traditional and more innovative scholarships at 13+. These are assessed in Year 8 and include dance, choral, music, sport, art, chess and drama, in addition to our academic scholarships.”

Following your confirmation of acceptance by the beginning of January of your child’s Year 7 we will invite them to a taster day, and closer to starting they will have the opportunity to meet their Housemaster or Housemistress.
