If your child is due to join us in September 2019, 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 our Admissions team on 01400 272422.
Once you have accepted your place at the school in March 2019 we shall prepare your child's New Starter Pack which includes forms to be completed in preparation for September 2019. This will be sent directly to your child's primary school in early May 2019 for them to bring home. Our Heads of House team will then arrange to visit your child at their primary school in late May/early June.
All pupils are invited to attend an Induction Day on Thursday 4th July 2019, 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.
