For admission to Year 7 (11+) application should be made one year prior to entry. Admission is by competitive examination in Maths, English and Verbal Reasoning, a group interview, and a report from a candidate's previous school.

Boarding update
The school has recently taken the decision, subject to planning permission, to increase our boarding provision at 13+ entry with the development of two new boarding houses, and to no longer offer boarding in Years 7 and 8. This change will be phased in during the next two years, and from September 2018 we will no longer be offering boarding at entry to Year 7. Please note that this will not affect the Continuity of Education Allowance for FCO personnel. Contact the Admissions office for more details.
