Age Placement Guide

Use the age chart below to check which grade your child will join.  It is the policy of the school to place students within their age appropriate year group. Students will be placed according to their age on the 1st September in any given year.

Please contact the Admissions office for any advice on which year group your child would join.

Age Placement


An assessment is required before entry to the school, this will be scheduled after receiving a complete application, All our assessments are age appropriate and are designed to help explore your child’s strengths and personal qualities, readiness and ability to access our curriculum. 

Assessments for Early Years stage and Year 1 are play based while the assessments for Reception and Year 1 are undertaken informally by a member of our Primary Years team. Children applying for Year 2–13 will sit a CAT4 test. Parents are welcome to wait at the reception while their child is being assessed.


Once the Admissions Office has sent an offer of place to the applicant, parents have 2 business days to confirm the acceptance or rejection. Parents have 2 weeks to secure their child’s place in school by paying the Registration fees. In case of delay, the place would be offered to the runner-up applicant.

It is payable within two weeks of receiving an offer from the Admissions Office. In case the term has already started, the full fees must be paid prior to the student’s first day of attendance.
