Prospective parents are welcome to come to our Open Days which are held in October. We also welcome visits from families throughout the school year whenever it suits each individual family. Although our largest intake of pupils is in August, we frequently accomodate pupils who wish to join us throughout the academic year. As well as visiting us, we recommend girls who are thinking of coming to Craigholme visit us for a Taster Day to experience a whole day of learning with us.
Our prospectus can be viewed online, using page flip software or alternatively a prospectus pack can be posted to you. To request a prospectus or view the online version, please click here.
Traditionally, our pupils start at Nursery, Junior 1, Junior 7 or Senior 1 level, in the Autumn term, but we welcome applications from girls at all stages of their school career and we can accommodate new pupils starting in the Spring and Summer terms if required.
To receive an application form, please contact our Admissions Secretary, Emma Chiren, email@example.com.
A registration fee (£30) is payable with the application form, and should be enclosed along with the completed application in the post to the school address.
Upon receipt of your application form, our Admissions Secretary will organise your daughter's assessment. Assessment tests for Senior pupils will take place annually in January, although we are happy to make alternative arrangements for applications received later in the session.
♦ Senior School
Our Senior entrance assessments, which comprise of Maths and English papers followed by an informal interview with the Principal, have been designed to recognise individual pupils' potential; it is not simply an academic test. Assessment results are taken into consideration alongside a report from your daughter's previous school. After the Senior assessments in January, the school will confirm in writing whether your daughter will be offered a place or not. Letters of confirmation can be expected to be received in mid-February.
♦ Junior School
Pupils in J2-J7 will be invited to spend a day in school with the appropriate class where they will be informally assessed throughout the day. Pupils in J1 will be tested on a one to one basis. All Junior School assessements are arranged on an appointment basis through our Admissions Secretary.
Entry Assessments for Nursery take place in March for August starts. Assessments can be arranged at later dates too for those starting at other points in the year. For more information please contact our Admissions Secretary.
Junior and Senior pupils are welcome to spend a day in school with their appropriate year group where they will attend lessons, meet the teachers and fellow pupils and take part in various activities. To arrange a taster day please contact our Admissions Secretary, Emma Chiren.
Regardless of when your daughter joins the Craigholme community, she will be welcomed by both pupils and staff alike. All new pupils are assigned a 'buddy' upon arrival to help ease the transition.
