Admissions Process | Lomond Independent School

How to Apply

We aim to keep the application process as simple as possible for families applying both within the UK and from overseas.

We accept applications for day places for children from ages 3 to 18 and for boarding, children from age 9. Whilst the majority of our pupils join us at key stages, our small class sizes and flexible curriculum allow us to provide a welcoming and smooth transition for pupils joining throughout the school year, at any stage in their education.

At Lomond School we provide a rounded British education and cater for a range of levels of ability. We do not operate a policy of academic selection, but we carry out some assessments prior to entry to ensure that pupils can access the academic curriculum on offer and are correctly placed in the right year group. We will therefore wish to obtain as much relevant background information about pupils as possible, to ensure the best start in class.


Initial Enquiry

If you are thinking about applying to Lomond School, the first step is to contact our Admissions Team. Our Registrar will provide you with information and literature and can arrange a visit to tour the School and meet with key staff who would normally include the Head of Junior School and/or Principal. For overseas applications, a Skype meeting can be arranged. Following your visit, you will have the opportunity to enrol your child/ren on a taster session, where they will have the opportunity to experience a day in Lomond School.


Once you have decided to proceed with an application, you should complete, and submit, an Application Form, which will be provided by the Registrar. This should be returned along with a £50 registration fee made payable to Lomond School.


All assessments are carried out to ensure that pupils can access the academic curriculum and are correctly placed in the right year group. From Junior 1 to 5, assessments are carried out informally in class, usually during a taster day. From T1 upwards, applicants will be invited to spend a day in School to complete assessments. Overseas applicants can carry out online tests in conjunction with a trusted Education Agent.

Offers and Acceptance

Offers will usually be made within two weeks following the assessment/taster day. To confirm acceptance, you will be required to sign and return the Parental Contract along with a deposit of £200 for day places and £500 for boarding. Please note that offers are subject to receipt of a satisfactory pupil testimonial from the existing school and on completion of all the necessary admissions documentation prior to the agreed start date.
