Starting school is an exciting and important stage in your child's development and we want their time at The Cathedral School to be a happy one.

During the half term preceding starting school your child is invited to visit the school for morning or afternoon sessions, enjoy a lunch and watch Sports Day. In September a home visit is arranged with you and in their first week they attend for a morning, then a morning and a lunchtime and then full time if their birthday is before March or part-time if their birthday is from March to August.  Every child has a buddy from Year 6 who will support them in all new situations throughout the year.

If your child is admitted to any other year group they are invited to visit the school and are shown around the school. For the first week they will have a buddy whose job is to support them in all new situations.
