Return to Secondary Transfer

Key Dates

Please do explore our website which provides further information about the school.

Entrance Exams – we aim to provide test dates by the end of the autumn term for tests taking place the following September in order that interested parents can ensure their child’s availability. One further date will be arranged, only if required, for children that are medically unfit on the test day (a medical certificate will be required) or have religious reasons for being unable to attend. WE ARE UNABLE TO ACCOMMODATE CHILDREN FOR ANY OTHER REASONS THAN THOSE STATED ABOVE.
