The Cothill Admissions process is very straightforward. Do start by calling Jane to request a prospectus and to make an appointment to see the school. The school visit will provide a great opportunity to experience Cothill’s unique atmosphere first hand. You will meet with the Headmaster Duncan Bailey and then be given what is usually a highly engaging and informative tour by the boys.

Our assessment morning is at the end of January and includes a variety of fun group activities and the chance to talk to the teachers one-to-one, before doing a little reading, writing and maths. The boys do not require any special preparation for this as the atmosphere is relaxed and informal and we like to have the chance to see them as they really are. Any families who are not able to come in January are most welcome to arrange for an assessment with one of the team at any point in the school year.
