Many children join us at 3 years of age in the Kindergarten, and progress up through the Junior School.
Children are eligible to join the Junior School at any point between the ages of 3 and 11, if a place is available and a successful Taster Day is completed. Boys and girls joining us from other schools are welcomed eagerly, and quickly made to feel part of the King’s family.
The first step is to complete our registration form, and to arrange a personal visit to King’s.
Entry into Kindergarten
Children are invited for a short taster or observation session to ensure they are ready to participate and progress in our pre-school environment.
Entry into Reception, Year 1 and Year 2
Children are invited for a Taster or Observation session with their appropriate year group prior to joining to ensure they are able to settle and cope with a full school day and the broad curriculum on offer.
Entry into Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6
Pupils are invited to spend a Taster Day with their appropriate year group. School reports will be requested from their current school and low-key Mathematics, English and Verbal Reasoning assessments will be undertaken during the Taster Day to ensure that all pupils will be able to access the curriculum. Children will have an informal interview with a member of staff.
Learning Support is available in the Junior School and a weekly lesson is timetabled for students with specific learning needs. We request that parents liaise with the School when making enquiries so that learning needs and any previous support can be discussed. Copies of any reports (such as Specialist Teacher Assessment, Educational Psychologist’s Report or any other medical reports) are also important to ensure that we are aware of the child’s background and have the capacity and resources to meet their needs. The Junior School SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) is available to meet with parents and will arrange an informal discussion with the child as part of their Taster Day at King’s.
