Friendly tips for a smooth application process

Please ensure that the contact details we hold (especially email) are up to date. Please ring the admissions office to check if in doubt, otherwise there is a risk you will miss crucial information which is sent via email. The offers are sent by post; if you move address, please let us know or the letter will be sent to an old address.

When possible, please submit with good time before a deadline. There may be a delay in acknowledgement due to a last minute rush.

If you wish to withdraw a candidate, please email the admissions office and we can remove them from the list.

Exam concessions

If you are seeking special exam arrangements of any kind (including extra time or use of a computer), the child’s educational psychologist’s report must be sent in when requested, this must be under two years old.

Exam concession requests are reviewed in line with the requirements of the ‘Joint Council for Qualifications’; they will only be awarded if the pupil would be granted the concessions in external formal exams. The headmaster’s decision on exam concession requests is final. The school will confirm in writing which, if any, special arrangements will be made for the candidate. Candidates must bring the letter of confirmation to the entrance exam.

If your child has an educational psychologist’s report you must supply this information if you accept the offer of a place.
