Admissions Process

Applying for your place at Duncombe

We are delighted that you have chosen to apply for a place at Duncombe School and are looking forward to providing your child with a Duncombe education.


Duncombe prides itself on ensuring a smooth, open, and professional admissions process. Our Admissions Team works all year round to promptly and efficiently respond to enquiries. Our steps to enrolment are outlined below, aiming to give you a sense of the process we undertake at Duncombe to ensure that we are the right school for your child.

Easy step by step process
Get in touch

We hope you will find all the information you need on these pages, but if not, our Admissions Team is here to help. If you would like to speak to a member of the Admissions Team, please complete our enquiry form, or get in touch directly by contacting us at 01992 141409 or

Visit us

The best way to learn more about Duncombe School is to visit us in person. We host open events and private tours throughout the academic year. Our open events provide an excellent opportunity to see the school in action, speak to our Senior Leadership Team and Admissions Team, and hear from our children themselves.

Register for a place

When you're ready to take the next step, register your child by completing the online Duncombe Registration Form and paying a non-refundable £100 registration fee. Please note that registration does not guarantee a place, but it allows us to consider your child's application and start our admission process to ensure we can meet their needs.

Book a taster day

Once registered, a great way for your child to get to know their classmates and our teachers is by attending a taster day. Children in Treetops Pre-School or those applying to join Reception the following September are invited to attend a morning session.

Offer of a place

If we have a space available and believe that Duncombe School is the right fit for your child, you will receive a time-limited offer following your child’s taster day. Congratulations, your child's educational journey is about to begin!


Once we receive your completed Acceptance Form and Deposit, we will send you confirmation of your child's place and start date, along with further information before their admission.
