Admissions Policy

Visiting the School

Many parents will want to visit High March before deciding to register their child and the Headmistress is always pleased to meet with prospective parents and to arrange for them to have a tour of the school. Appointments are made by the Registrar who can be contacted on 01494 685743.

Registration

Parents who wish their child to be considered for entry are asked to complete the school's registration form. On receipt of the registration form the Headmistress will consult the form lists and a place will be offered subject to the payment of the registration fee. Should the form lists be full, the child's name will be placed on our waiting list and parents will be contacted should a place become available. Priority on the waiting list is given to siblings whose older sisters/brothers are currently attending High March.

Admission to Nursery

Girls are admitted into our Nursery in the academic year in which they turn four and they automatically move into the Reception class in the September before they become 5. It is expected that all the girls will continue the next phase of their education at High March and priority will therefore be given to girls joining Nursery who will be staying for Reception and beyond.

Admission to Reception

From Reception there are two parallel mixed ability classes. There is a small intake of girls into the Reception year. Places are offered on a "first come, first served" basis and so early registration is recommended.

Admission to Years 1 to 2

Prospective pupils are invited to spend a day with their future class to familiarise themselves with the school. There is no formal assessment undertaken, but parents are asked to submit a report from the child's former school and a confidential reference may be sought from the Headteacher of that school.

Admission to Years 3 to 6

Parents are asked to submit a report from the child's former school and a confidential reference may be sought from the Headteacher of that school. Prospective pupils are invited to spend a day with their future class when an informal assessment will be made to check that they will be comfortable with the standard of work at High March.
