GAINING A PLACE
Candidates sit tests at the school in English, Maths and Non-Verbal Reasoning. A significant proportion of candidates will be interviewed in groups. We also request a confidential report from your child’s current Head Teacher. In 2018 there will be places for approximately 70 boys and girls to join approximately 30 children from Highgate Pre-Preparatory School.
VISITING THE SCHOOL
A visit to the school is not a pre-requisite prior to application, but we warmly invite you to come to see us for a weekly tour and/or our annual Open Day. These events give you the opportunity to get to know the school better and importantly, in the case of the Open Day, allow the children to visit so they feel more familiar when they join us for assessments and can start to feel enthusiastic about their potential new school!
Parent Tours are held throughout the year on a weekday morning during term time and last about an hour and a half. The visit consists of a talk by the Principal of the Junior School followed by a tour of the new Junior School. These tours are designed for parents only. Please note that in the Autumn Term, tours are usually booked up quickly. For this reason, priority is given at this time of year to parents of children sitting tests for entry the following September.
Parents and children will have the opportunity to meet current pupils and teachers and to participate in a variety of activities. There will be tours of the site too. Our Open Day for entry in 2020 or 2021 (i.e. pupils starting year 1 or 2 in September 2019) will take place on Saturday 28 September 2019 and registration will be available through this website from July 2019. Further details will follow but we expect the Open Day to be from 9am to 1pm at our Junior School on Bishopswood Road.
