Initial Contact and Parent Visit

Prospective parents who show an interest in the School are invited to visit, either on an Open Morning or on an alternative day which suits them, when they will be given a tour of the School by a Senior boy and have an opportunity to see the School in action and meet the Headmaster and SENco if necessary. When you visit, please park at the front of the School, by the minibuses.

Assessment Day

A mutually agreed day will be arranged for the child to attend the school. During the Assessment Day the child will have the opportunity to experience a day at Kingswood House and meet the peer group of the class. During this visit, the SENco will meet with the child on 1:1 basis to talk and do a few informal tests to assess the level of performance. At the end of the child’s visit, the Headmaster or SENco will meet the parents to discuss the assessment.

 

Offering a Place

Following assessment it may not be possible to offer a place immediately. The Headmaster or SENco may not have been able to receive feedback from the relevant teaching staff or information may be required from the child’s existing school. If the child is suitable and a place is available then an offer will be made. Written confirmation will be sent and once accepted Joining Details will follow.

 

Academic Scholarships

In November, a Saturday morning is set aside for meeting and testing Academic Scholarship candidates at age 6+. Application Forms are available from the School Office. Please Note: Parents have a responsibility to inform the prospective school of any issues/ conditions and disclose any reports both medical and academic relating to the applicant. Withholding information may necessitate the school reviewing their offer of a place.

Mrs Helen Parker

Whether you are just starting your search for the right school, or if you feel you have made your decision with Kingswood House, I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to the school.
