We are delighted that you are interested in finding out more about Shoreham College, and what you need to do to come one step closer to joining us. We hope that you will find all the information you need here, but our friendly admissions team is always available to answer any queries along the way.
Step 1 – Initial contact
The ideal way for you to meet us and visit Shoreham College is at one of our Open Mornings. You are also welcome to arrange an individual visit to tour the school with our Principal, Mrs Sarah Bakhtiari.
Please call to arrange an individual visit, or email our admissions officer Mrs Hall here.
Step 2 – Reports and Taster Day
If you are considering applying to Shoreham College, we ask you to provide two of your child’s most recent school reports and some other relevant information.
We invite your child to visit Shoreham College either for a morning taster session or a full day, depending on their age. This is a great opportunity for your child to get to know their prospective classmates and meet the teachers. On the day, children entering Year 5 or above undertake one or more aptitude assessments. There is no preparation required, and we do not use this information to decide whether an offer is made.
Stage 3 – Offer
Following the taster day, an offer will be made subject to availability and references. Shoreham College is a mainstream academically non-selective school, but our Principal may decline to offer a place at her discretion. Please contact our admissions officer to find out further information regarding behavioural and curriculum requirements.
Stage 4 – Acceptance
Once we have made our offer, you should complete the registration form and return it to us with the required deposit. We strongly recommend early acceptance as we consider registrations in the order that we receive them.
Confirmation of acceptance follows two terms before entry. Joining information will be sent to you at the appropriate time.
For children starting in September, there may be an induction event at the end of the preceding summer term. Children are welcome to join us at any point during the academic year.
