The closing date for applications to Year 9 in September 2014 has now passed. We welcome applications from students interested in joining Year 9 for entry in September 2015 and beyond.
For those candidates who have missed our application deadlines: while we cannot guarantee that we will be able to process late applications, we advise you to send a copy of the candidate's latest school reports and a covering letter outlining their strengths and interests, and we will keep the information on file.
We will contact you if we are able to proceed with an application at a future date.

For admission to Year 9 (13+) application should be made at least two years prior to entry for both day and boarding places. A confirmation deposit of £750 will be requested 18 months before entry; this will be refunded if a firm place is not offered.
The entrance assessment takes place in the October of Year 8. All candidates take a Verbal Reasoning Test and are interviewed, and we request a reference from their school. Offers to those candidates at British Prep Schools who are following the Common Entrance syllabus are conditional on passing our Academic Scholarship exam or the Common Entrance Exam (most of our applicants achieve an average in excess of 70%). Those candidates who are not at a British Prep School will additionally sit a Maths and an English Test in October.
