Junior school tasters

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

Our Junior School Taster day (Year 4-8) including Scholarship assessments for Autumn 2022 entry will be held on 30 October. We will also be holding a Taster morning for Year 1-3 entry on Friday 29 October.

Junior School Taster Day (Year 4-8) including Scholarship assessments: Saturday 30 October 2021

The Taster day is for children who will be eight (by the end of August 2021) 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 through our own assessments which include verbal and non verbal reasoning, mathematics and English. Sadly this year due to covid restrictions we are unable to welcome prospective students to stay the night but they are very welcome to stay with us into the evening to get a feel for life in the boarding house.
