Junior school tasters

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

Year 1-4 Taster Morning on Friday 1 February 2019

We invite prospective pupils to join our Taster Morning on Friday 1 February. This morning is for children who will be four and a half by the end of August to eight years old. Starting at 9am the children will join their age group in the Junior School and sample a morning of lessons and activities, followed by lunch in the Junior School dining room.

Parents are welcome to stay for the morning too. To see around our school, hear about the curriculum and meet the staff, as well as sampling lunch.

Taster Weekends

Children can choose to spend the night in the boarding house, even if they are not intending to board when they become pupils. 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.

Tasters are held once a term:

  • Taster Morning on Friday 1 February 2019, entry at Year 1-4 only
  • May Taster Weekend, entry all years
  • October Taster Weekend, entry all years, including Scholarship assessments (Year 4-8)
