Children registering for a place in Year 9 will be invited to sit ISEB pre-tests in their own prep school between 1st October and 1st December of Year 6.

Children will then be invited to an Orientation Day at the end of February 2022. 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.
