How to Apply

To apply for a place at our school, we have three simple steps for you to follow. Apply as soon as you can – although we accept students throughout the year, spaces can be limited.

If you have a question you want to ask before you apply, you can:

Many Upper School grades (Grades 9-12) are already full for the next academic year 2023/24 starting in August 2023. This means that we are already implementing waitlists for these grades. Please contact an Admissions representative to check availability before submitting an application for the Upper School for August 2023.
