The first part of the application process to apply for a place is to complete an online Registration Form. Once the School has received the Registration Form and Registration Fee, parents will receive a letter from the Registrar acknowledging their son’s registration.
As part of the application process, the Headmaster and Deputy Headmaster interview every applicant before the entrance examination takes place in January. These interviews are a very worthwhile process. They enable the Headmaster and the Deputy Headmaster to meet your son in person and chat with them about their interests and hobbies. The interviews are also very beneficial for your child. They enable the child to meet a Senior Staff member, which will very often put them at ease before sitting the entrance examination.
As a School, we want to get the best from your child, and to put them at ease on entrance examination day. Therefore our examinations take place in a classroom environment and not a daunting examination hall. We also provide a well-earned break during the examination morning, where the School Chef provides an outstanding selection of refreshments. It has been commented by many of our past applicants that Halliford School provides the best refreshment break ever!
The School offer Scholarship at 11+, therefore applicants can apply to be considered for an Art, Drama, Music or Sports Scholarship, by completing a Scholarship Application Form. The Scholarship assessments and auditions take place in January before the entrance examination.
The entrance examination results together with the scholarship results (for those applicants who have applied) will be sent to parents within two weeks from the examination date. The successful applicants who are offered a place at Halliford School will have an advised date to accept the offer or decline.
