Parents considering an application for admission for their child should in the first instance contact the school Office to make an appointment.

Visits to view the school by appointment can be made at times that suit you, and will normally be accompanied by the Head, Dr Paula Radice, who will be available to answer any questions you may have.

Visits to see the Nursery will be arranged to be accompanied by the Nursery Manager or one of the Room Leaders.

If you have any further queries or questions, we are always pleased to help.

Children may have free taster sessions in the Nursery, or taster days in the School, to make sure that they are going to be happy here.

Part-time enrolments are possible in the School, and we are always happy to discuss adjustments to provision to suit the needs of individual children: indeed, this is a feature of Charters Ancaster of which we are particularly proud.  If wanted, an appointment can be made to meet the Special Needs Co-ordinator.  Dr Radice is also able to advise on provision and meeting the needs of gifted pupils, including those with Dual Exceptionality (giftedness plus an additional need).

A copy of our Admissions Policy may be obtained from the school Office or available to download below.
