Mid Year and Abroad Admissions

Mid year applications

We are happy to accept applications from pupils for places mid schooling. We accept a number of pupils each year who have either moved to the area or who have not settled at their current school.

If there are available places in the required year group we would invite pupils for an assessment and an interview with the Headmistress/Headmaster. We would always seek to obtain a reference from the pupil’s current school.  Applicants are normally tested in Mathematics and English. Offers of places are made to successful candidates shortly after their visits.

Bursaries are not available for intermediate entry.

If you would like to have a personalised tour or require any further information please contact our Admissions team on 0161 696 8600 or email us at 

If you would like to arrange an assessment for your child, please complete the application form and we will contact you to book a suitable time.

Applying from abroad

We appreciate that some parents will be researching schools from a distance due to moving home, often overseas.  As a result, we have developed a personal service which means that you can visit the school at a time convenient to you. 

In some circumstances it may be possible to arrange for applicants to sit entrance examination papers or assessments from their current school. We may also be able to arrange interviews via Skype.  We hope that this makes the application process easier for you and your child.

Please call our admissions team on 0161 696 8600 or email to talk about your specific circumstances if you feel you could benefit from this service.
