Beech House Admissions

Boys and girls are usually admitted to Beech House in the September following their fourth birthday. We are looking for bright, enthusiastic children who take a lively interest in the world around them.

Individual interviews of about half an hour take place during the Autumn term of the previous year. No formal skills are required. The children take part in a series of activities which help us to assess their readiness to listen, to concentrate and to adapt to school life. They may be asked to use a pencil with some measure of control, complete jigsaws, talk about their daily routine or follow instructions carefully. Allowances are made for age. Any children who are reluctant to cooperate on their first visit will be given another appointment.

Offers are sent out in December. Unfortunately, the number of applicants exceeds the number of places available and there are always some disappointments. The names of children who are not offered a place initially are placed on a waiting list.

The children selected are invited to join in a series of activities at Beech House during the summer term as part of our induction process. They spend some time in class with their teacher and Nursery Nurse, watch our Sports Day and come to our Summer Fair.


Enquiries and applications for entry should be made directly to our secretary, Mrs Katharine Gore on 01204 434759 or 01204 840201 ext 269. Mrs Gore can be emailed at: infants@boltonschool.org
