GSO Test

Admissions Process

If you would like to take your initial interest further, the following steps complete the application process:

  1. Register your child. Parents are encouraged to complete a Registration Form and return it to the Registrar, together with the Registration Fee, as soon as possible. Whilst Registration doesn’t guarantee your child a space at Sandroyd, it does gain them a place on our admissions list. When spaces are limited, preference is given to those families who have registered earliest.  As a small and popular school we do encourage early Registration.
  2. Taster Day (if social distancing allows). All registered children are invited to a 'Taster' day or 'Taster' boarding session. This taster day allows our son/ daughter to experience school life and boarding on a normal school day.
  3. Take part in an assessment (if social distancing allows). We do assess all children before they start at Sandroyd. All registered children will be invited to an assessment morning the year before they are due to start. This is to ensure that we are the right school for their individual needs. It is an informal assessment that enables us to gain a snapshot of their ability in the classroom.
  4. Receive a formal offer of a place. An offer of a place will be made shortly after the assessment morning. At this stage, we then ask parents to secure the offered place by paying a deposit. 
  5. Enjoy getting to know Sandroyd! All new families are invited to our New Pupils’ Day, which is held in June each year. This is a wonderful day where new pupils and their families have the chance to meet each other, along with current staff and pupils.
