Joining Brandeston Hall
Before registering your son or daughter, we strongly recommend that you visit the school to receive a tour of the academic and pastoral facilities and meet the pupils and the Headmaster.
Please contact the Headmaster's PA so that we can tailor the visit to your individual requirements. To help us plan the visit, please complete the Enquiry Form that will be sent to you in the prospectus pack prior to your appointment.
There are no entry tests at this level. Children are invited in for a period assessment which could be a morning or a day. Places tend to fill quickly so early applications are advised. For more details contact the Headmaster's PA.
At this level children are again invited in for a period of assessment which could be a morning or usually a day and are assigned a pupil as a mentor for the day. During that time there is a short academic assessment which gives a very good indication that children can cope satisfactorily in a more demanding learning environment. School reports and general school records are also taken into account.
Entry tests for external Year 6 pupils take place in the fourth week in January. Entry tests in Mathematics and English for external Year 6 pupils take place towards the end of January and those that do exceptionally well will automatically be considered for the 11+ Scholarships. Applications throughout the year can also be catered for, if pupil spaces are available. School reports and general school records are also taken into account.
The academic scholarship is a continuation scholarship awarded to pupils who will be transferring through to the senior school. Pupils who pass the entrance test might also wish to be considered for assessment for Sport and Music Scholarships and the Albert Memorial Scholarship for pupils who are considered to be good all-rounders. These are also continuation scholarships.
Year 7 and 8 pupils wishing for a place at Brandeston Hall are invited in for a period of observation and assessment of between a morning and a full day and are assigned a pupil as a mentor for the day. During that time there is an academic assessment which gives a very good indication of whether children can cope satisfactorily in a demanding learning environment. School reports and general school records are also taken into account.

Visiting the School and Registration
Deciding on a school is an important step and a personal visit is invaluable. We hold a number of Open Days throughout the year which are advertised on our website and in the local press. We also strongly encourage all prospective parents to visit for a personal tour at a mutually convenient time. Please contact the Headmaster’s PA, Lucy Bryanton and she will be pleased to tailor the visit to your individual requirements.
Following your visit, you will be sent a registration form to complete should you wish to register your child at the school and we will ask for this to be returned with a registration fee of £50 (non-refundable).
If successful, parents will receive an offer of a place for their child and will be asked to complete an acceptance form and pay the acceptance deposit of £200 (£1000 for EU pupils and one term's boarding fee for non EEA pupils). If registration takes place after 1st March for entry in the September of that year, the registration fee and acceptance deposit must be paid together. The School reserves the right not to offer places to those it considers would not benefit from the School's education, would not cope with the academic curriculum, or who may have a detrimental effect on other pupils.
