Children who want to come to Princethorpe sit an entrance examination usually in the November of the year before they are due to start in September, but due to the COVID-19 situation we are moving the entrance examination for 2021 entry to January 2021. The majority of children join us in Year 7, but children are welcome to join in other year groups
as space allows.

Entrance Examinations Day for September 2021 entry will therefore take place on Saturday 23 January 2021 from 9.30am to 3.30pm. The deadline for registrations, scholarship and bursary applications is Friday 4 December 2020, to facilitate the seeking of references from the candidate’s current school. The results of the Entrance Exams will be published on Thursday 11 February 2021, when the decision is also shared with the candidate’s current school.

Competition for places is high, as are standards, but the school also looks for young people who will contribute to the wider life of the school. In recent years we have been considerably oversubscribed.

Our Registrar, Vanessa Rooney, Assistant Registrar, Helen Morgan and Admissions Administrator, Catherine Rogers will be pleased to talk you through the admissions process.

Please contact them on 01926 634201/262/297 or 07930 601877/07951 075247 respectively, alternatively email them at admissions@princethorpe.co.uk

" We definitely made the right choice of school and are very grateful that you gave her a place. The main reason we initially fell in love with the school was hearing about the 'ethos' and the pastoral care. At the time I said to others that all schools talk about these things but yours was the only school where I really believed it. My instincts were right!"
