Admissions


We understand that choosing the right school is an important and sometimes complex decision, for both parents and daughters. You will be supported in this by our highly experienced Admissions Team, who will be your main point of contact during the process. They are here to answer your questions, help you to navigate anything that is unfamiliar, and generally provide guidance and reassurance during the admissions journey. 

Entrance is by way of interview, assessment and a report from the current school. Pupils may gain admission to Adcote School in any year group and also throughout the academic year by special arrangement with the Headmistress.

Once you have decided that Adcote is the right school for your daughter, a taster day can be arranged while we are awaiting reports and references from the current school. Please contact the Admissions Office if you wish to find out more about the Bursaries, Scholarships or Armed Forces discounts available.
