Admissions Process:

Contact Us – we are now accepting applications for September 2017 entry. We accept applications for entry into the school all year round and if you are considering a place please contact Admissions on 0115 849 4940.

The Elms has a small number of places available for Pre-School and Reception 2017. Please contact as soon as possible to register for a place.

Visit us –  children joining our Pre-School or Reception will be invited in for a morning stay and play session within our current Pre-School setting. Children will be assessed in normal classroom lessons for entry into Years 1-4. For Year 5 and Year 6 entry children will be invited in for a Taster Day and will also be required to take an online verbal and non-verbal assessment. 

Register your child – complete our registration form and send in with your registration fee (£50 for The Elms Nursery & £60 for The Elms School) to confirm you would like to apply for a place for your child at The Elms. 

Bring your child in for a Taster Day – Once registered we would love to invite your child to join us at The Elms for a taster day where they will take part in a normal school day. Children will be assessed as part of normal classroom lessons for entry in to Reception through to Year 4. For Years 5 and 6 entry we will ask children to take an on line assessment including verbal and non-verbal questions.

The assessments taken for Year 5 and Year 6 entry will also determine a place at Trent College Elms pupils do not have to take the Trent College entrance exam for Year 7. 

Following the Taster Day, the Head will contact applicants with feedback to confirm if an offer of a place will be made to join The Elms.
