Entry Procedure

We take boys from Year 3 onwards as boarders (years 3-8), transition boarders (4 nights per week for years 3-6) and day pupils (years 3-8).  Entry to the school can be at the start of any of the three terms in the academic year. 

Entry requirements

Your son will be invited spend a familiarisation day with us.  He will join classes and activities and will be well looked after by two boys of a similar age to give a taste of a day in the life of a Horris Hill pupil.   We want to make sure that your son will cope with our curriculum and that he will thrive at Horris Hill.
