students and head teacher

We look forward to welcoming you to London Park Schools. There are three ways to join us:

  • At 11+ (Year 7) LPS Clapham OR Eaton Square Senior
  • At 13+ (Year 9) LPS Clapham OR Eaton Square Senior
  • At 16+ (Year 12) LPS Sixth Form (Eaton Square Sixth form)

Our Fresh Approach

We want to take the stress out of the Admissions process and make it as simple, straightforward, and humane as possible.

  • Enquire on-line and/or…
  • Come and meet us (Open Events, Head’s Coffee and Taster Days)
  • Apply on-line and pay the registration fee (£150)
  • Provide key data
  • Attend a Discovery Day
  • Receive an offer
  • Accept and pay a non-refundable deposit
  • Join us!

Rather than ask prospective students to take an entrance exam, we do all we can to get to know them so that we can minimise the stress of choosing a senior school.  We believe that a child’s current school knows them better than anyone else, so we set great score by looking at what a prep or primary school can tell us about a student. As part of the application process, we ask for:

  • Any existing digital data (e.g. CAT scores, MIDYAS data etc)
  • A recent school report
  • A recent piece of marked creative writing
  • Any information from other professionals that give evidence of learning needs/strengths
  • A reference from the current school

Discovery Days

If we believe that a student has the potential to thrive at our school, we invite them into one of our Discovery Days.  This is their opportunity to get to know us better and for us to observe them.  We ask students to undertake a series of group tasks during which we observe them to see how they interact with others, how they approach problems and to get a better understanding go how they think.  During their time with us each child will also have a 1-2-1 interview with a member of the senior leadership team.  These days are not meant to be stressful, but fun.  We want students to leave having had a stimulating and enjoyable time.

Following a Discovery day, we will make an offer and ask for responses by a specific date.  A non-refundable deposit secures your child’s place.
