Subject to social distancing regulations making it safe to do so, we would aim to hold the Entrance Examination on Saturday 8 October 2022.

If your child has access arrangements at KS2 that they require to sit the Entrance Examination, we must receive a confirmation email from your child’s school, outlining the access arrangements and supplying supporting evidence.

We must receive this evidence by no later than one week before the published date of the Entrance Examination so that the school’s SENDCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) can review the evidence, and seek further clarification if required.

If the school does not receive this evidence in time for us to undertake these checks, your child may not be allowed the access arrangement in the Entrance Examination.

The school reserves the right to decline any request for access arrangements, following the review of the supplied evidence.


Subject to social distancing regulations making it safe to do so, we would aim to hold the Music Auditions on Thursday 6 October & Friday 7 October 2022.

Booking a time slot for a Music Audition can be done after the Open Evening in September.
