Our entrance assessments for Nursery and Kindergarten take place throughout the year at Kelvinbridge, Milngavie and Newlands.

Children whose birthdays are on or between:

  • 1 March and 31 August are eligible for a place subject to readiness assessment in the autumn term
  • 1 September and 31 December are eligible for a place subject to readiness assessment in the spring term

Entrance assessments for Prep 1-3 are held in January of each year. 

Our entrance exams for Prep 4 through to Senior 3 are held each year at the end of January at Kelvinbridge.

Like all independent schools in the West of Scotland, we offer places in February after the Entrance Exam.

Occasionally we have vacancies later in the year - and it is always worth checking availability with us on 0141 342 5494.

The Academy will always try to make places available for siblings of existing pupils, unless it becomes apparent during the entrance procedures that admitting them to the school would not be in their best interest. We would only reach such a conclusion by discussing it openly with parents.
