For entry into Year 2, children are also required to complete some simple, age-appropriate academic tests.

For entry into Years 3 to 6, children will undertake a number of activities to help us assess their verbal and practical skills in English and mathematics. Children who successfully complete their assessments are invited to interview.

For children in Year 1 and above, we will ask your child’s current school for an academic reference unless indicated otherwise at the point of application.
