Admissions

Admissions process

BGS is an inclusive school which treats every child as an individual. No matter what their starting point is, we aim to help them progress as much as possible. Our admissions process is very straight forward for each year group, which is outlined below.

Magic Tree Nursery and Pre-Reception

Parents seeking a place in Magic Tree Nursery or Pre-Reception may request entrance at any time of year and will be offered sessions subject to availability. Children are invited to attend taster sessions in advance of starting so they become familiar with the setting and get to know the staff.

Pre-Prep and Prep

Pre-Prep and Prep children are invited with their parents to attend an informal meeting and tour of the school with the Headmaster. Children will also attend a taster session at school, after which a place may be offered.

International admissions

We have been welcoming families from the USA and beyond for more than two decades and we are the closest school to RAF Menwith Hill, being just a five minute drive from their front gates.

 

Our staff are experienced at helping children of all ages settle in and understand that sometimes a little extra support might be required to help them adjust to the British education system.

 

Following an initial enquiry, we can arrange a phone/zoom call with our Headmaster and then guide you through the admissions process to ensure it runs as smoothly and seamlessly as possible.

BGS bursaries

Belmont Grosvenor School is progressively raising funds for a bursary scheme and is very keen to encourage applications from parents who, because of their financial situation, would not normally be able to afford to send their child/children to the school.

Our Headmaster is extremely happy to have a confidential discussion with any interested family who feel they may benefit from a bursary and an education at Belmont Grosvenor School.

All applicants will be required to complete a detailed means-test form and may be required to attend an interview. All information provided to the school in relation to bursary applications is treated confidentially.
