We believe the application process is straightforward and explain this in more detail below. However, please do not hesitate to pick the phone up and talk to us at any time – we will be very happy to answer any questions you may have.

Joining ages

Children may join us at any age from 3 for the Nursery up to age 12 joining Year 8.  Typically, our year groups grow as children join the school at different stages and so we introduce additional classes where appropriate, ensuring our class sizes are optimal.  

When and how to apply

Applications may be made before or after visiting All Hallows.  However, please be aware that places in some year groups can fill up quickly and beds may be taken within the boarding house.  It may be necessary for us to operate waiting lists from time to time.

To avoid any chance of disappointment early application is strongly recommended!

The non-refundable registration fee of £100 may be paid by online transfer or by cheque made payable to All Hallows School.

Registration

When we receive your completed application form and have confirmation of the payment of the application fee, we will write to you acknowledging this and confirming that your child’s application has been registered.  

We may ask you to supply us with recent copies of your child’s school reports (if applicable) at this stage if you have not already given us these.

Registration neither guarantees your child a place nor commits you taking a place up.  It does, however, place your child’s name on our lists for entry subject to our standard admissions procedures and your acceptance of any place offered.  

In the event of a year group being fully subscribed at the time of your application, we will place your child’s name on a waiting list and advise you to this effect.

In registering your child for a place at the school, you are agreeing to the Terms and Conditions of the school.

Taster days

This is your children's chance to experience life at All Hallows at first hand and to meet their peer groups.  We invite your children to join us for one or two taster days so they can really get to know what it is like to be part of our community.  If your child will be boarding, they are welcome to spend the night with us too. We will arrange with you the best time for these taster days to take place.  

If your child is joining Year 3 or above, they will have a buddy (mentor) to show them around school and to make sure they know what to do at any stage throughout the day.

Children applying to join Year 1 or 2 are looked after by their class collectively during their taster days.

Children applying to join the Nursery or Reception classes will be invited to a taster session and where possible, our staff will visit them in their current setting.

We will be grateful for any information you can give us, prior to your child’s taster day, so that we can prepare for their visit. Please note, whilst your child does not need to pass an entrance test in order to be offered a place at All Hallows, we do need to ensure that they will be able to access our curriculum and flourish as they make their way up through the school.  As such, your child may have an assessment with our Learning Support staff whilst they are with us.

Offer of a place

Following the taster days, our admissions team will collate the feedback from the staff involved in your child’s visit and discuss this with you. As ever, you are welcome to ask further questions at this stage. Typically, this will be followed by an offer of a place for your child.

All offers of places are subject to ongoing receipt of satisfactory reports and references.

Accepting a place

An offer of a place is accepted by completing an 'acceptance form', agreeing to the school's terms and conditions, and sending this to the Head of Admissions together with payment of the acceptance deposit of £500.  

An application form is also required, together with the application fee of £100, if this has not been completed at an earlier stage.

Confirmation of a place

When we receive your completed acceptance form and payment for the acceptance deposit, we will acknowledge this and confirm your child’s place.
