If your child is due to join us in September 2018, we realise that you may have many questions and need information to prepare for the big day.  To help in this process we have highlighted areas of the website which you will find useful and have provided some information and dates below.  Should you have any more questions, then please do not hesitate to contact Mr Martyn Davison in our Admissions team on 01400 272422.

Once you have accepted your place at the school in March 2018 we shall prepare your child's New Starter Pack which includes forms to be completed in preparation for September 2018.  This will be sent directly to your child's primary school in late April 2018 for them to bring home.  Mr Davison and our Heads of House will then arrange to visit your child at their primary school in May.

All pupils are invited to attend an Induction Day, usually held during the first week of July 2018, where they will find out which House they will be in, spend the day doing some taster lessons and enjoy a complimentary hot lunch from The Dining Hall (or they can bring a packed lunch if they prefer).  Your child may be able to travel on the school buses this day to allow them to get to and from school but parents are asked to speak to the Finance office regarding this nearer the time.

Parents are invited to return with their child to the Induction Evening later that same day where they can listen to a welcome talk from Mr Guest, Headteacher, meet and chat to their Base Tutor, try on and buy uniform from our agreed suppliers and ask any further questions.

You may wish to visit our School Information section of the website which can be found under the 'Parents' menu as the information links below are mostly contained within that area.
