Welcome to Admissions
Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions that you, as a parent, will make. The Admissions Team is here to make the process of finding out about St Gabriel’s and applying for a place as easy and straight forward as possible. Whether you are in the early stages of your search or if you are looking for entry in to the next academic year, we will guide you through the admissions process and answer any questions you might have.
We welcome boys and girls from as young as six months into our nursery, who are then able to progress through into our Junior School from the age of 5 through to 11 years (Reception - Year 6). From the age of 11, when pupils enter the Senior School (Year 7 – Year 11), through to the Sixth Form (Year 12 & Year 13), we are a girls' only school. However, from September 2022, we will be extending our co-educational offering in the Junior School through to Year 7. A second co-educational entry point of Year 9 and Sixth Form will be established in September 2024.
Our website just gives you a snapshot of life at St Gabriel’s; the best way to find out about the school, and all it has to offer your child, is to come and see for yourself. You are welcome to visit the school as many times as you wish and can either join us at one, or more, of our open events or we can arrange an individual visit and tour of the school at your convenience.
Each individual visit includes a meeting with our Principal, Mr Ricki Smith, who will be able to discuss your child’s educational needs in more detail, and a tour of the school by our pupils. Should you have any specific questions that refer to the academic or pastoral life in the school, we can put you in touch with the relevant members of the academic and pastoral teams.
I very much look forward to meeting you and if you have any questions, no matter how small, please do not hesitate to contact me.
