Independent Co-Educational Day & Boarding School for Ages 2 - 18 The Best of British Boarding by the Sea

Taster Sessions

Following your visit to the school we offer a taster day to each prospective pupil. They will be paired with another child in their year group and follow the day’s usual timetable.

Pupils entering in the Prep Department will also undergo an assessment in the classroom and may take some cognitive ability tests. In the Senior Department, students sit relevant entrance examinations in English, Mathematics and Science. Sixth Form applicants are considered on their predicted grades at GCSE and an interview with the Headmaster.

If the child is a prospective boarding pupil we will offer an overnight stay or two in order for them to experience a night away from home, with any activities which may be on offer.  Pupils who wish to join our elite swimming programme are also offered an overnight stay coupled with a training session.
