Entry to the School


Entry to the Reception unit is for children who have turned four years of age. There are no assessments for entry at this stage and a child may enter school the term following their fourth birthday.

Entry to the infants (Years 1 and 2) requires an informal assessment during a half-day visit to school. Places are then offered following the visit.

Entry to the Junior Department (for children aged 7-11) is by a written test and an informal interview with the Head Teacher. This can take place at any time depending on the availability of a place. Once the assessments have taken place, formal offers are sent out within a few days.

Prior to starting at Queenswood School we will invite your child to spend half a day with us to help them settle in to the school surroundings and meet their new friends and teachers.

Anyone interested is most warmly invited to visit the school. There are a number of Open Days and Information Days throughout the year (see the Calendar page for dates and times) when you can visit without prior arrangement, but the Head Teacher encourages parents to visit school on a normal working day. Parents may arrange an individual tour of the school with the Head Teacher by contacting the school, on the telephone number shown above, or email the Head Teacher.

We hope to welcome you to our school.


"Pupils’ concentration and self-discipline in learning is exemplary….they are confident and enthusiastic learners with a thirst for knowledge and pride in their achievements."

"In addition to their academic success, pupils are becoming self-confident young people with high expectations and a balanced view of life."
