Thank you for your interest in our school.
Our admissions process is simple, transparent and outlined in brief below. We do not have a catchment area and we welcome children of mixed abilities and many talents.
You will be guided every step of the way by our experienced Admissions Officer, Mrs Rachel Passi. Children are welcome to join us at any time during the school year and into any year group, subject to a place being available. Please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Passi on 01922 748817, email firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the short enquiry form to the right and we shall be in touch. We look forward to hearing from you.
Contact us for an initial conversation about your child and to check availability in the relevant year group.
We will be able to email you an interactive document for you to find out more about Hydesville Tower School, which includes our current prospectus and virtual tours as well as details about our current admissions process, fees and much more.
Your application - to include registration
Following an initial conversation with our Admissions Team – and once you have confirmed you would like to begin an application – we will ask you to send us a copy of your child’s most recent school report. At this time, you will also be asked to complete a registration form and pay a £50 registration fee (for Nursery applications) or a £75 registration fee (for Prep and Senior School applications).
We will contact your child’s current school to request a standard reference. Once received this will be reviewed with your child’s report by the relevant Head of School.
We will schedule a Taster Day so that your child can experience a day at Hydesville:
• For entry to our Prep School the taster day includes a range of assessments, appropriate to the child’s age group.
• For entry to our Senior School the taster day will include an online assessment. This includes numeracy, literacy and non-verbal reasoning. The day also involves a handwritten creative writing task.
Our Head of Prep School / Head of Senior School will also be pleased to give you a tour and you will also have the chance to ask any further questions and find out more about our educational offering.
Subject to a positive completion of the steps above, we will make a time-limited formal offer of a place for your child to join us.
You accept the offer, completing the necessary paperwork supplied to secure your child’s admission. Pay a deposit of £500 to secure the place; this will be refunded to you when your child leaves the school.
If you accept your child’s place, we will stay in touch to ensure a safe and smooth transition for you and your child. We look forward to welcoming you to the Hydesville family.
