Trial Days – October – December
All students attend one day in school to meet the teachers and classmates. They will attend classes with our current students. This gives teachers a chance to meet them and is one of the more important of our selection tools.
References – January – February
The current school will be contacted at this time to request an academic and personal reference for your child. Please inform your school that you have registered with Seaford College.
Ability Testing – Dates will be announced shortly
If you can not attend one of these please make sure you arrange to attend the other. These tests are a very important screening aid and, if you are unable to attend any of these testing days, may delay the offer of a place.
Offers – Late January / early February
We ask for you to accept any offer as soon as possible. Easter is usually the deadline. On accepting a place, you will need to send in the completed acceptance form with the deposit to secure the place for your child.
Scholarships & Bursaries – February
Scholarships are a £500 award per year. If you require any further financial assistance please request and complete a Bursary Application before the deadline.
