Reception (4+) Entry

  • Visiting the school: either at an Open Morning or arrange an individual meeting with William Phelps and tour of the school.  Please fill out the Arrange a Visit form.
  • Registering your son: either request or download the Registration Form, complete and sign (two signatures normally required) and return together with a non-refundable cheque for £100 made payable to The Beacon School.   Registered boys are placed on a waiting list in order of date of registration.
  • Offer of a place: there is an informal assessment for entry into Reception a year prior to entry.  Following the assessment, offers are made in the order of the date of registration.  Parents are given a date by which to return the Acceptance Form and deposit cheque (£750) in order to secure a place for their son in Reception for the following September.  An email is sent from the Admissions Office acknowledging receipt of the Acceptance Form and cheque.
  • Joining: meetings for parents, taster session for pupils and joining packs with handbooks are sent out either in the Summer Term prior to joining or, if boys are joining mid academic year, a few weeks before joining. 
  • Uniform: the School Shop is opened on taster/moving up days for parents to try for size and order uniform.  Both the School Shop and the second hand uniform shop are open during the term-time and on a number of days during the summer holidays. Appointments can be made with the Shop Manager through the Registrar for boys joining mid academic year.  Click here for more information on Uniform.
