Most children join the New School at the start of the new school year in September.

There are occasions when children will join part way through the year and we welcome those children and do our very best to make sure they integrate into the class quickly and happily.

Taster days are an important part of our admissions process and we happily welcome new children to spend a day with us so they can get a really good feel for what The New School is all about.

If you would like to enquire about registering your child or children, please call the Admissions and Marketing Office via 01392 273679 or email

Personal accident and dental insurance

This covers serious injury of a lasting nature occurring during term time or holidays as well as dental treatment arising as a result of a dental accident or emergency. This is included in the termly fees.

Personal effects

The school stresses the need to ensure that the pupil's personal clothing and property (which should also be clearly marked with the pupil's name) are covered by family insurance. The school's own policy protects parents only where negligence can be claimed (e.g. watch lost having been handed to a member of staff for safe custody). It is particularly important to cover for lost/stolen bicycles, musical instruments, mobile phones and the like.
