At Ballard, we aim to make your admissions’ experience as friendly and as smooth as possible. Whether you wish to register in advance or are suddenly relocating and need a place quickly, we will always try to help.

Ballard believes in ‘Bespoke Education’ and this starts with admissions. From the moment you contact us, or request a prospectus, we treat you and your family as individuals. We want to learn about your child or children and their interests so that we can, wherever possible, make the journey tailored for them.

To begin with, we welcome you to come and visit us either on an Open Morning or to arrange a private visit. Please contact our Registrar, Lynsey Davis, on 01425 626900 or email: to arrange this.

If places are available, you can secure your child’s place by registering them and paying a small fee. We then recommend a taster day so that your child can ‘test drive’ our School and we can ensure, with you, that Ballard is the best fit for them.

Waiting List Notice

Please be advised that we are currently operating a Waiting List Policy for entry into 2020 for Year 7 and Year 9. If you are interested in your child or children joining Ballard School into Year 7 or Year 9 in 2020, please contact our registrar as soon as possible to note your interest.

Our admissions process is outlined here: Next Steps and our admissions policy can be found here: Admissions.

For those with exceptionally talented children, Ballard offers scholarships into Year 3, Year 7 and Year 9. Applications do need to be made in good time and interest registered in the year prior to starting.

We will also help you with School uniform (the school shop is on-site), transport arrangements and our extensive extra-curricular activities to give you the best start at Ballard.

We look forward to welcoming you and your family to Ballard.

“The administration team have been extremely efficient and helpful, and processed our application in a very speedy manner but not making us feel rushed into decisions.”
