Bassett House School - Girls exiting door

How to apply

Entrance procedure

Once you’ve registered and visited us, the next thing that happens depends on your particular circumstances. 

Offers for children starting the school year aged 3 or 4

Places are offered in registration order with priority given to brothers and sisters of children already at the school. In terms of timing, when you will receive an offer depends on how long it is before your child is due to start at Bassett House. For those children registered when they are babies, offers of places are sent out by post about 16 months before the child is due to start.

Offers for older children

If your child wishes to join further up the school, please contact us, to find out whether a place might be available in the relevant year group.  If it is, the school will then invite your child to undertake an assessment to establish your child’s level of attainment (focusing on Mathematics and English) to determine whether your child will be a good fit for the class and will be able to fully access the curriculum that the intended class is following.  For younger children, the assessment is more about whether your child will fit with the existing class than academic attainment. We will then let you know if and when you can expect to receive an offer.

How to accept a place

When you receive your offer, you will also be given instructions on how to accept the offer.  This involves an advance payment of fees and a deposit of £2,500.
