For Term One enrolment, the first admissions decisions will be issued in February and on a rolling basis thereafter.

POST-APPLICATION

  2. The child’s current or previous school will be contacted by a member of our school staff to carry out a routine reference check.
  3. If the report from the previous or current school is satisfactory, and depending upon the year group for which you are applying, you may be placed in one of our waiting pools. Waiting pools exist for most year groups so parents are encouraged to register with us as early as possible.
