Assessments for entry in September 2019 will take place in the spring term 2019. With this in mind, we ask that you register no later than Saturday 1 December 2018 to ensure that we have sufficient time to send you the necessary paperwork and information regarding your son’s assessment day.

Please note that the application deadline for Scholarships (Year 9 and Lower Sixth entry) and Bursaries (Years 7, 9 and Lower Sixth entry) for boys intending to join the school in September 2019 is also on Saturday 1 December 2018. If you would like to apply for a Scholarship and/or Bursary, earlier registration is advised to allow time for additional paperwork to be sent and completed before the application deadline.

We are able to consider assessing for entry into the school at other times of the year, provided that we have places available. However, applications for Scholarships and Bursaries cannot be considered outside of the normal time frames.

Completed registration forms should be sent to:
