We are delighted that you are considering Arnold lodge for your child.

This section of our website will give you more information about our admissions process and provide you with a step by step break down of each stage in our process.

*Please note that for Reception class only Steps 1, 2 and 5 apply.

Step 1: Get in touch

• Contact a member of our admissions team on - 01926 778 050

• Filling in the enquiry form below.

• Send us an email with your enquiry to –

We accept pupils into all year groups, but our main points of entry are Reception, Year 3, Year 7 and Year 12.

Step 2: Come and visit!

Following on from your initial enquiry, a member of our admissions team will then be in touch to find out more about you and your child and any initial questions you may have. They can then arrange a personal tour of the school with Mr Preston, the Headteacher, at a time that is convenient for you.

Your tour will provide you with an excellent insight into the caring and friendly environment we provide for our pupils. You will be able to see our teachers in action and ask questions you may have about the school day, curriculum and/or facilities.

Step 3: Book a taster day

There is no better way for your child to get a real feel for our school than to spend the day with us. We will place them in a class with their prospective peers and they will experience a day in the life of an Arnold Lodge pupil.

Step 4: Information gathering

After the tour and taster day, a school reference will be sought from your child’s current school and the Headteacher will consider the application by looking at the feedback from Arnold Lodge staff and the school report.

In order to secure a place at Arnold Lodge we ask for our registration form to be completed and returned along with the payment of the £50 (non-refundable) registration fee.

A place will be offered or declined at this stage.

Step 5: It’s your decision!

By this stage in the process you will probably have a clear idea of whether or not Arnold Lodge is the right school for your child. However, if you and your child feel a second taster day would be useful then our admissions team will happily arrange it. We want everyone to feel happy with the final decision!

Once we have received the registration form and £200 deposit (returned when child leaves Arnold Lodge School) to secure the place, we will send you out a Welcome Pack.
