Year 7 admissions 2021

Admissions Update - Covid 19:  We understand that the current restrictions in place are very unsettling for both parents and children.  At this stage the Entrance Examination will proceed as planned but the position is under review in light of the current uncertainty and arrangements may have to change.  We would encourage both parents and children to continue as best they can with their preparations. 

Unfortunately we are unable to go ahead with the Open Morning scheduled to take place on 27th June and we are looking at alternative ways to undertake this virtually.  Please visit this Admissions page regularly as any updates will be posted here.
