The process of admission in 5 simple steps:

  1. Enquire about a place 
    To enquire about a place and discover more about our school please contact our Admissions Team on 01753 882 474 or email [email protected]
  2. Visit our School 
    Please book in for an individual tour or attend an open morning so you can discover more about the school and see it in action. Getting to know you and your child is very important so we can find out more about your son. The tour will happen with the Registrar and Headteacher.
  3. Register your Child 
    The next step is to register your child by completing the Registration Form. Your registration will be confirmed once payment of the registration fee has been received. If you require a Bursary or would like to know more about becoming a scholar, please enquire for our Bursary/Scholarship application pack when you register.
  4. Attend a Taster Day and Assessment 
    Once you have completed the online registration form, we will arrange for your son to join us for an assessment and possible taster day. Your son will be invited to attend a Taster Day to ensure that the teaching and learning experience on offer at Thorpe will provide your son with the best educational journey to meet their needs.
  5. Offer a place 
    After your child has successfully completed the entrance assessment, and we feel that Thorpe is the right academic setting for him, our Admissions Team will send out an offer letter, parent contract and Acceptance form with details to pay the deposit to secure the place for your son at Thorpe House.

If you have applied for a bursary, an offer of a place is reserved for your son, subject to the outcomes of your bursary application and decision of the bursary panel.
