At Skippers, we aim for our admissions to be a seamless process from enquiry to your child starting at our school. The admissions process is below with the steps we follow to help you see if Skippers is the school for your child.
1. Request a Prospectus
If you would like to request a copy of our prospectus, please complete our Prospectus Form above, or contact the School Office. An online version of the prospectus is also available to download once the Prospectus Form has been completed.
2. Visit the School
If you would like to come along and visit the school, you are welcome to attend any of our forthcoming Open Events. Alternatively, if you would like to visit the school at another time convenient to you, we can arrange for you to take a personalised tour with our Headteacher, Mr Phillip Makhouli. Simply complete our short online form and a member of the School Office will be in touch.
3. Registration and Place Offers
Following your visit, if you would like to register a place for your child, we ask that you kindly complete our Registration Form and return it, along with payment of £50.00, to the school. Offers for places at the school are made following a meeting with the Headteacher.
4. Accepting a Place
When your child is offered a place at the school, a completed Acceptance Form as well as a copy of your child’s birth certificate should be sent to the school within 14 days. We also require a £250.00 deposit which will be returned when your child leaves Skippers, subject to any outstanding amounts.
The receipt of your completed form, full deposit and copy of birth certificate confirms acceptance and will close the place to other children.
