Year 3 (7+) 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.
  • Assessment: invitations to attend an Assessment Day are sent out to parents of boys who are registered for Year 3 a year before entry.  The boys are assessed by the Head of Pre-Prep through Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning Tests, reports from current schools and observations made during the day  We hope the boys will enjoy their day at The Beacon, seeing the facilities, attending lessons such as PE and music, and meeting the teachers and current pupils. 
  • Offer of a place: offer letters are sent out to parents of boys who have been successful following the Assessment Day.  Parents are given a date by which to return the Acceptance Form and deposit cheque (£750) to secure a place for their son in Year 3 for the following September.  A letter is sent from the Admissions Office acknowledging receipt of the Acceptance Form and cheque.
  • Joining: for boys joining in September, meetings for parents and a moving up day for pupils are held in the Summer Term before joining.  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.  All boys from Year 3 and above who are joining in September are invited to come to an induction afternoon the day before the start of the Autumn Term to meet their Tutors in their rooms, locate their lockers and familiarise themselves with the school. 
  • 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.
