Open Days

Thank you for your interest in our school.  We are pleased to advise that despite the current coronavirus crisis, we are still able to progress your application to join us. During the COVID restrictions we are guided to meet applicants and their families virtually rather than in person. We will continue to adapt our admissions process based on Government guidelines.

The admissions process is simple and transparent and outlined on this page here. We do not have a catchment area and we welcome children of mixed abilities and many talents. We are non-selective. 

You will be guided every step of the way by our experienced Admissions Manager, Mrs Christine Phillips. 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 Phillips on 01922 624374 or get in touch with us here by filling in the form and we will be in contact with you.  We look forward to hearing from you.

2021 OPEN EVENTS

Early Years Virtual Open Event

  • Tuesday, 20th April at 10am 

  • Thursday, 22nd April at 4pm 

You may not yet be able to come and see us in person, but you can still get all the information you need about our fantastic Nursery & Reception classes from the comfort of your home.

We are very proud of our progress as a school in the last couple of years, not least our Prep School, which has become far more widely recognised as an excellent foundation on which to build your child’s education.  Our test results in the EYFS profile far exceed the national average; looking at data from the past three years, on average 92% of our children reached a ‘good’ level of development at the end of our EYFS.  The national average over the past three years was 71%.

Once you register to attend our virtual event  we will send you a link to watch a pre-recorded  virtual tour of our Nursery &  Prep School to find out more about our provision and view our facilities.

In the videos Mrs Smith, Head of Nursery and  Mrs Chand, Head of Prep School will also show you around our Nursery and Prep School, including our classrooms, performing arts spaces and outdoor areas. You will find out more about our small class sizes, outstanding pastoral support, Forest School and the varied enrichment and extracurricular provision.

Please watch these tours at your leisure before your open event on 20th or 22nd April.  During the open event itself you will meet Mrs Smith, Mrs Chand and our Headmaster, Mr Honey, on video call using Microsoft Teams.  Here you will have the opportunity to ask questions and find out more about our wonderful Nursery, Reception and wider Prep School.

We have built preparation for 11+ success into our curriculum throughout our Prep School, with our experienced teachers delivering specific 11+ preparatory work to pupils from Year 2.

At our Virtual Meet the Headmaster event Mr Honey will explain more about our Centre for Excellence in 11+ Preparation. You will also find out more ahout our small class sizes, our outstanding pastoral support and our extensive extra-curricular and enrichement programme.
