Seniors (Ages 13-16)

Senior School

From the age of 13 (Secondary School Year 8) children enter the Senior School and have the opportunity to flourish academically, physically, emotionally and spiritually in our family environment. An independent School with small class sizes provides a unique learning experience across a wide ranging curriculum, and a huge variety of extra-curricular activities.

Our students gain self-confidence through the knowledge that they are valued as individuals, each recognised for their own strengths and talents. 

How to apply

Children who are secondary school age, rising 13 - 14 Years, may enter Year 9.  Pupils may join the school in any appropriate year group and at any time during the academic year, depending on personal circumstances and availability of places.  Parents are welcome to approach the School to arrange for a tour and exploratory visit during a normal school day and to meet the Head. 

There is no formal school entrance examination, but pupils are invited for a taster day in their current year group, to meet their peers, experience lessons and extra-curricular activities and to sample our exciting lunch menu. During the day a pupil will be informally assessed and this, together with reports from the present school, will form the basis of our decision to offer a place.

Awards are available for entry into Year 9 and academic tests in English, Maths and Verbal Reasoning will be sat in the January prior to September entry for those children wishing to apply for an Academic Award. 

Scholarship awards to acknowledge outstanding talent are available in Art, Drama, Music and PE and we ask that you fill in the appropriate application form to apply for auditions and trials for these awards, which take place at the end of January prior to the September of entry.  Please apply to for application forms.

The whole School's Admissions and Attendance Policy is available for parents to view.  More information about our fees can be found here.
