Junior school tasters

We also arrange Taster Days and Weekends for boys and girls who would like to sample life at the Junior School.

Junior School Taster Weekend on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 May 2019

We invite prospective pupils to join our Taster Weekend on 18 and 19 May. This Taster Weekend is for children who will be four and a half (by the end of August 2019) to twelve years old. The emphasis of the day is on fun and it is a good opportunity for both parents and pupils to experience life in the school. We also take the opportunity to assess pupils for entry, but don’t worry, they’re not going to be forced to sit any exams. We simply benchmark pupils by asked them to take standardised tests in Mathematics and Non-Verbal Reasoning and creative writing. Children (aged 8 and over) can choose to spend the night in the boarding house, even if they are not intending to board when they become pupils.
