Joining Great Ballard

Arrange a visit

We always welcome prospective parents at the school, whether it’s during school hours when parents can see the day to day operation of the school first hand, or during one of our organised open day events. Call our office team to register your interest or complete our enquiry form and a member of staff will gladly arrange a tour of our facilities which provides a great opportunity for parents and children to see our facilities, meet teachers and fellow pupils and find out more about what makes Great Ballard School great.

When can my child join Great Ballard?

Children can join at any time during the school year, even mid-term. We have a buddy system to ensure that all new children are made to feel welcome, whatever their age, ability or background. Having a dedicated buddy who is familiar with the school and other pupils enables all new pupils to settle in quickly and make the most out of their time here at Great Ballard.

Selection Criteria

Prospective pupils are invited in for a taster day, after which (where applicable) we would seek references and their latest school report from their current school.
