We are interested in showing our child the setting, how can we do this? 

After you have attended a parent tour and completed the application form, you can book your child onto a 'Try Out' session via the website. This is a two day trial at a cost of £78. If for any reason we are unable to offer your child a place at Lumiar Stowford after the try out, we will fully refund your payment as per our enrolment policy. If you choose not to proceed then this is a non-refundable fee. For Reception aged children we follow a different admissions process. We will discuss this with you after you have submitted the application form.

Do you accept children with a Statement of Special Educational Needs? 

Yes, we can support a number of children who have SEN. If you would like to discuss this further, please contact us.

Are all places full time? Would you accept children on a flexible basis? 

We require students to make a full time commitment and do not offer flexi-schooling options at present.

My child is Reception age in September 2020, can I reserve a place? 

Yes! We are currently registering students for this intake. We ask you to follow our admissions process, attending a parent tour/Open Event and completing the application form. We have a limited number of spaces available so we encourage you to apply asap. Spaces will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

When is your next Open Event?

We look forward to welcoming parents/carers of Reception aged children on Thursday 14th and Thursday 28th November 2019.
