How to apply

We are no longer accepting applications for September 2018 entry.

Finding the right school for your child is not always easy. At Freemen’s, we know just how stressful this process can be, so we will guide you through every stage of our 5-step Admissions Journey.

The deadline to apply is 15 October before the January you wish to sit Entrance exams.

If you have any queries or concerns, our dedicated Admissions Team is only a phone call away.

If you are unsure about when you would like your child to join Freemen’s, we will work with you and your child’s current Headteacher to determine the most appropriate time to move.

This journey also tells you what you can expect from us; when you can expect decisions and what will happen should your child be offered a place, wait listed or declined.
