Every day is an open day at Pownall and our door is always open for personal tours with our Headmaster. If you would like to book a personal tour, please click here.
We are delighted that you are interested in starting your child’s educational journey at Pownall Hall School. If you would like to ask us any questions, we are available by either calling us on 01625 523 141 or emailing us firstname.lastname@example.org.
Following your tour, please complete our Registration Form and return to email@example.com or Admissions, Pownall Hall School, Carrwood Road, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5DW. A £60 registration fee is required at this stage.
In our wonderful pre-school, comprising of Robin Room (6 months to 2 years), Owl Room (2-3 years) and Kindergarten (3 – 4 years), there are no formal assessments. Your child will spend the day within their cohort, enjoying our free flow provision in the care of a key worker. The key worker will ensure that your child is safe, happy and enjoys their time with us. They will make observations throughout the day and these will be fed back to you upon your pick up.
Pre-Prep and Prep
From Reception and upwards, children are required to complete an assessment for entry into these year groups. Our assessments are designed to see whether your child will be able to thrive and enjoy our academic curriculum, irrespective of any special educational needs or disability they may have.
For entry into Reception, children will be assessed within the EYFS key areas of learning (ELGs).
For children in Form 1 and above, pupils will be invited for two consecutive taster days.
The first will include an academic assessment in maths, English and non-verbal reasoning, as well as being a chance for us to get to know your child pastorally, and for them to make friends within their class.
The second day will be for the children to enjoy all of the wider curriculum opportunities available for them here at Pownall Hall School, such as Art in our studio, music in our theatre, games on the astro or in our sports hall, Forest School in our beautiful grounds, and get a feel for our school as a whole.
Should an offer be made for your son or daughter to join Pownall Hall, an acceptance form will be sent out for you to sign and we will ask for a £500 deposit. Once we receive the form and deposit, your son or daughter’s place will be confirmed. The deposit will be refunded when your child leaves at the end of Year 6.
