Entry to our school is at three years old. Children must turn three before 1st September of their admission year. Children may be registered from birth to the 19th May of the year preceding their admission year. Please see the timelines below.
Registration requires a completed Registration Form (available from Rachel Vaughan, our School Administrator and Registrar) and a payment of £150 directly into the school’s bank account (Bank of Scotland, Sort Code: 12-01-03, Account No: 06103260).
Confirmation by email will be sent once both the completed form and the payment are received. If you do not receive a confirmation email, please telephone the school as we will not be held responsible for lost registration forms or payments.
Places are allocated by a ballot drawn by the Headmistress, the School Registrar and the Assistant Director of Education from Cognita. We offer 26 places. Registered siblings automatically receive a place providing their brother or sister attends Charterhouse Square School at the time of the ballot and their first term of entry. Therefore it is only for the remaining places that the ballot is drawn.
Successful applicants are sent an offer letter by first class post and invited to attend an Open Morning. Unsuccessful applicants receive a letter asking if they wish their child to remain on the waiting list.
On receipt of an offer letter, your child’s place is held pending receipt of the £4,000 Acceptance Deposit which must be paid by the date set below. Your child’s place is not secure until the deposit is received. Should your child not start with us for any reason whatsoever, your Acceptance Deposit will be forfeited. Deferrals are not permitted.
Please note that the Acceptance Deposit is made to secure your child’s place. This is held by us until your child leaves the school, at which point the deposit is refunded against the final term’s fees, providing that one term’s notice has been given.
See below for the timelines for the September 2018 and 2019 intakes. Please note the change in dates from those previously published.
