The Admissions Process
At King William's College and The Buchan School we welcome enquiries from prospective students and their families of all ages and nationalities.
For general enquiries, to arrange a visit, order a prospectus or for further information, please contact our Admissions Registrar in the External Relations Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone +44 (0)1624 820110.
The first step in the process is to contact the School for a discussion about your child's educational requirements. An information pack, which contains our registration form, prospectus, fees, term dates and details of our Open Events, Bursaries and Assisted Places Scheme, is available on request.
We would then ask for you to send a completed application form, which can be downloaded below, to the External Relations Office. This ensures your child's name is included in the provisional entry lists.
The next step is to arrange a visit where you and your family will be given a comprehensive tour of the School and meet with our Head and academic members of staff at a time that is convenient for you and tailored to your child's interests.
Our taster days are also a wonderful way for your child to experience life at the Buchan on a normal working day and can be arranged any time during the School year. Your child will be teamed up with a 'buddy', who will escort them to lessons and introduce them to other students and our teachers. They can enjoy lunch, take part in some sport or join an academic club. Our taster days are bespoke and can be arranged around your child's interests.
A full report from the Head of your child's current school or nursery is normally required. The firm offer of a place follows receipt of this satisfactory report.
All information regarding our admissions process, along with the relevant forms to be completed, are available in our Admissions Guide, which can be requested from our External Relations Office or downloaded via the link at the bottom of this page.
We look forward to welcoming you and your family to The Buchan School!
