Summer school

“The summer school is an integral part of the College and promotes high standards of personal achievement, conduct and community spirit. These summer courses are an ideal preparation for transition to the main school or to another British school.”

During this period of working remotely due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Admissions Office is open and ready to assist you. We are actively taking registrations for Year 7 2021 places and Year 12 2020.  We currently have boarding availability in some years and please enquire for more information.  We also have limited availability in the Nursery and early years at the Prep for September 2020 start.

Please email  for all College day and boarding enquiries and we will be happy to assist you.

For any Nursery and Prep enquiries please contact Mrs Tracey Dickinson by email who will guide you through the admissions process.

Thank you.

As the College and Prep are currently not open to visitors we hope you enjoy these videos which were created to replace our cancelled Open Morning.
