Registered boys are placed on a waiting list in order of date of registration.
  • Offer of a place: there is an informal assessment for boys entering Pre-Prep. 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 Year 1 or Year 2. A letter is sent from the Admissions Office acknowledging receipt of the Acceptance Form and cheque.
  • Joining: boys joining in Year 1 and Year 2 are invited to attend a familiarisation morning and joining packs with handbooks are sent out to parents 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.
