Admission to the Pointer School is by family interview, and for children of five years and above by a short diagnostic test.

Before the interview, the application form should be sent to the school, together with the registration fee of £100. Please note the application fee is not refundable and that the acceptance of an application does not constitute an offer of a place. Parents will receive a written offer of a place in respect of their child subsequent to a satisfactory family interview and test (if applicable). A deposit of £1000 should then be returned to the school. You can download the application form here.

The Pointer School may contact the child’s previous school (with parental agreement) in order to discuss the candidate’s progress and to confirm all financial matters (if applicable) have been satisfactorily resolved. Parents must disclose to the Headmaster before admission any feature of the child’s personality, physical and mental health that might affect his/her fitness for education and membership of the school. This includes disclosing to the Headmaster details of any special educational needs and learning difficulties. Failure to do this will result in the withdrawal of the offer of a place.
