MORE ABOUT APPLICATIONS
Once we have received your application form we will contact you to arrange a family meeting. We do not select students on academic ability, but we do ensure that the whole family have similar educational values as Atelier 21 as we want to protect our culture.
The meeting is a space for both to ask questions and for you to get a feel for whether the school is right for you, and for us to decide if we believe your family will thrive as part of our progressive school community.
The last step is for your child to attend a taster morning for free, and for the teaching staff to decide if we can offer your child a place at our school.
We won’t be looking for your child to prove they can do anything in particular, we are simply making sure they can thrive in our environment. The vast majority of children will, but we reserve the right to politely refuse a place if we feel strongly that we can’t meet your child’s needs.
If your child has attended one of our Little Barn Owls Nurseries, your child will be awarded a place in Reception Class at Atelier 21 (space dependent) without having to attend a taster day, unless you would like your child to do so. We would still require a family meeting to take place with one of our school leaders.
