We aim to make the Admissions process as friendly and straightforward as possible. Mrs Lisa Botwright, our Registrar, is happy to answer questions and discuss your application to Caldicott. Please contact her on 01753 649301 or email her on [email protected].

Parents can register with Caldicott at any time. This is generally at least three years prior to entry, although many do so much earlier, and some later. The only commitment at this stage is the payment of a non-refundable Registration fee of £100.

The main points of entry to Caldicott are Year 3 (aged 7) and Year 4 (aged 8).  Subject to availability of places, boys can join in Year 7 (aged 11) as full boarders for two years in preparation for senior school.

Spaces are also occasionally available in Year 5 and 6; please contact the Registrar with any enquiries.

Please download the Registration form here.


Update: Due to the current climate and guidance from the NHS and the Prime Minister, we are now closed to pupils and visitors. It seems unlikely that the school will re-open at the beginning of the Summer Term and our next Open Morning may have to be postponed. We hope that this is not the case and we will be able to welcome you to Caldicott in May. In the meantime, we recommend you book onto our Open Morning using the link below, and if we do need to postpone we will be able to keep you updated via email. Our Registrar, Lisa Botwright, is working remotely and is ready to answer questions you may have. Please email her on [email protected].

Assessment Morning

A year before entry, your son will be invited to attend an Assessment Morning and a report will be requested from your son’s current school. The aim of the Assessment Morning is to identify emotionally intelligent boys, with an appetite for learning, who will thrive in the rigorous academic environment of the school. They will be invited to take part in a series of activities and engage with other boys their age.

Our next Assessment Morning will take place in November 2020, for September 2021 entry.

If you would like your son to be assessed for entry to Caldicott, please contact our Registrar, Lisa Botwright, on 01753 649301 or [email protected].

Please note that boys need to be registered with Caldicot before they are assessed.
