The Process in Brief 

Claires Court is a selective Independent Day School, based across three sites in Maidenhead.  We invite pupils to apply for a place who will make the most of the opportunities and challenges that will lie ahead of them at Claires Court, enriching our whole school community.  Prospective pupils need to meet our academic standards and we consider these alongside your child’s current school references, reports and interview and in each intake, we admit pupils across a range of abilities.

Points of Entry

Our usual points of entry are in Reception and Year 3 for Juniors, Year 7 and Year 9 for Seniors* and Year 12 for the Sixth Form. We do accept in-year transfers outside these points if we have the capacity to do so.

*As our usual entry point is Year 7 for Seniors, our Year 9 places are limited so please call us to discuss this.
