Children are welcomed to taster days with no formal entrance examination, but some assessment, interview with the parent and child and a full report from the previous school. Pupils who are non-native speakers of English may expect to take extra English lessons (EFL) according to need. Children with specific learning difficulties may be accepted provided the school feels able to offer the specialist and general assistance required.
