Once a place has been accepted, and relevant paperwork received, prospective students are invited to attend an Assessment Exam on a Saturday in February (this is not an Entrance Exam). Completing this Assessment Exam is the first step on your child’s journey to secondary school education – to mark this significant event we invite students and parents to a celebration in the hall immediately after the exam is completed.

In May, prospective students will also be invited on a team building day – we believe this type of day helps prepare each student for their transition from primary to secondary school.

The evening before the induction day, parents of incoming students are invited to an information session.

Throughout the year, our staff will also work with your child’s primary school teacher to form a picture of your child’s likes, dislikes, strengths, and abilities.
