Entrance Exam


      Admission into Dame Allan’s Schools is by examination. For children applying for Nursery, who are welcome from the age of three,  children are invited into school for an hour during which they spend time in the Nursery.

      For children joining Reception, there is an assessment which includes letter and number recognition, sequencing and motor skills.

      From Year 1 upwards entry is through assessment in maths, English and non-verbal reasoning. Children then spend time in the classroom with their year group.

      References from a pupil’s current school are required at all age groups.

      The first step is to submit an application form which you can find here.
