Entry point is age 4 for Reception onwards. Boys are welcome to join the school in any year group where there is availability. We accept registration at any time for placement in the current or coming years. During normal circumstances boys are invited to come into Lower School in the October prior to entry for an informal social assessment. The purpose of the assessment is as much for the boy to get a feel for the school as for the school to get a feel for the boy.
In the summer term prior to entry, the Reception class teachers visit the new Reception intake either at their homes or their pre-school setting (if they attend one), before all the new intake (Reception – Year 2) come to a taster/moving-up session to familiarise themselves with the school and their new teachers and classmates. During the summer term prior to entry there is also a ‘meet the teacher’ event for parents, when teachers talk about the forthcoming year, the curriculum and the ‘New Parent Information’ pack is given out.
