We know that you will have a lot of questions when choosing a school. We are always happy to answer your questions. You can call us directly on 01372 822423, or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are some of the questions we get asked most frequently.
what are the main points of entry into the school?
There are four main points of entry into Freemen's each September:
- 7+ or Year 3 entry
- 11+ or Year 7 entry
- 13+ or Year 9 entry
- 16+ or Year 12 entry
We will consider applications for other years if we have space. We will not invite your child to sit for an entrance assessment, unless we know we have spaces in that year. If we do not have spaces, we will add you to our database and contact you should a space become available?
