Admissions Process, Key Dates and Deposit
We encourage you to visit the School with your child during one of our Open Events. To apply for your child to come to Ewell Castle School, you will need to complete an application form and send this together with a cheque for £75 payable to Ewell Castle School, to the Registrar.
Existing Ewell Castle School pupils are not required to submit an application form when transfering from the Preparatory School to the Senior School. The same applies to our Year 11 pupils applying for a place in the Sixth Form.
Please be aware that we are currently working through the high volume of applicants to the School, which may cause a slight delay in getting back to you. We thank you for your understanding and for your interest in Ewell Castle School.
|Nursery/Reception||A meeting with the Nursery Manager for you and your child.|
|Preparatory School||A meeting with the Head of the Preparatory School and a taster day for your child which will include an assessment through observation in the classroom.|
|Senior School||A taster day for your child to include an assessment in Mathematics, English comprehension, creative writing and a reading assessment along with an interview with the Principal. Admissions assessments will take place in groups of between four and six children.|
To enter the Sixth Form, potential students will have an interview with the Principal and a lesson taster session. Places offered are conditional upon GCSE (or equivalent) grades in the public examinations.
The minimum entry requirement is 5 A*-C Grades (including English and Mathematics) and a minimum B Grade at GCSE in the subject to be followed at AS Level.
For September entry, we encourage applications by October of the previous year. Interviews and visits are organised and places are offered within a few weeks. Where places are still available (or to place your child’s name on the waiting list) the School will accept applications throughout the school year. Applications for Nursery places are processed on a termly basis. The scholarship and bursary application deadline for entry to the School in September 2017, is 31st October 2016.
A deposit is payable on acceptance of a place, refundable at the end of a pupil's education at the School. The deposit is not refundable in the event of a pupil, having accepted a place, not joining the School.
From 1st January 2015 the deposit amounts will be as follows:
Nursery and Reception deposit: £250.00
Year 1 to Year 13 deposit: £750.00
Failure to disclose any Special Educational Needs pertaining to your child, may result in the offer of a place at Ewell Castle School being withdrawn.
Failure to pay the school fees constitutes a breach of contract and this will result in a place at the School being withdrawn.
For further admissions queries please contact the Registrar, Mrs Wilkins at firstname.lastname@example.org who will be happy to assist you.
We look forward to welcoming you and your child to Ewell Castle School.
