We are delighted that you are considering Bilton Grange for your son or daughter and our friendly and experienced Admissions team are here to guide you through the process. Many of our children join Bilton Grange at the beginning of their journey into The Nest or Reception, however pupils are welcome to join at any age, and throughout the academic year if a place is available.
You are warmly invited to visit Bilton Grange on one of our Open Days or for a personal tour. We offer tours during school hours led by one of our Admissions team on a date to suit you and your family. Gareth Jones, our Head, will give you a true feeling of why Bilton Grange is the very best choice for your child and how we make learning the adventure it should be. You can book on to our next Open Day here, or for a personal tour, please email the Admissions office.
We look forward to meeting you soon.
We kindly ask that all visitors to the school premises familiarise themselves with our safeguarding information for visitors leaflet.
Registering your child is the next step and we can let you know of place availability in your required year group. Early registration is recommended, particularly for our Early Years – the deadline for 2024 Nest (Pre-School) and Reception entry is October 14 2023.
Once the registration form and (non-refundable) registration fee have been received, we will confirm receipt and you will move to the next stage of the process.
Once your child is registered, we will invite them to enjoy a flavour of what Bilton Grange has to offer. Our Early Years children will enjoy a Discovery Session whilst Years 1 to 3 will enjoy a full Discovery Day where we will informally assess them to ensure that they are able to access our curriculum. For children applying to Year 4 and above, in addition to the Discovery Day, we will arrange assessments in a suite of reasoning tests to ensure that they are able access the curriculum and that they are able to make the most of the opportunities available to them. We will also ask for their latest school report prior to making an offer.
At the end of your child’s Discovery Session or Day we hope to be in a position to offer them a place, subject to availability. You will be asked to secure your child’s place by acceptance of our offer, in conjunction with the terms and conditions and by paying an Entrance Fee.
A very warm welcome awaits all new families joining Bilton Grange. You will receive a Welcome Letter with links to our on-line Joining Information as well as handbooks and uniform and equipment lists.
We are very excited that your child is about to take their first steps in the adventure of life with Bilton Grange!
