The Admissions Process

Thank you for your interest in Cambridge Home School

Our school is nearly always full – Now accepting limited Applications for September 2022 and September 2023

Due to the popularity of the school and a limited number of available school places parents are advised to register their child and join our waiting list well in advance of a starting date. Parents who are wishing to join the school urgently should complete an enhanced application – see below.

What Are the Requirements for Homeschooling Your Child?

As one of the most effective, convenient, safe, and retentive ways of learning, quality online education is increasingly becoming the preferred choice for many grades-focused/safety-focused families in the UK. At Cambridge Home School, we’re committed to providing the superior education that top universities demand.

The school only accepts goal-driven motivated students who are prepared to work hard to attain top grades for entrance to the world’s top universities. We also want to know that parents are as committed as we are to the success of their children.

Homeschooling is a great option for parents who want to be at the centre of their child’s academic growth and personal development. Unlike conventional schools where parents are literally left outside of the school gate, at Cambridge Home School parents have access to all of their child’s progress data and teachers. We expect parents to use their expert knowledge as parents to help the school tailor its offer to their child’s individual learning requirements and learning styles.

Whether you wish to enrol your child in the Primary Prep (Key Stage 2), Lower School (Key Stage 3), Upper School (IGCSEs), or Sixth Form (AS & A Levels), you can rest assured that they’ll receive a world-class education at Cambridge Home School.

Our admissions process is straightforward, simple, and hassle-free. Please note that our school is almost always full, so we strongly recommend planning ahead and submitting an application as early as possible – we have children on our waiting list who won’t begin school with us for 2 years or more. Also, please note that we will only accept applications from families living in time zones conducive to attending LIVE classes – from 9 am UK time (2 pm for Sixth Form/A Level study).

Continue reading for a closer look at the key processes associated with getting your child enrolled at Cambridge Home School. We’ll walk you through the registration process for the informal discussion, waiting list, enhanced application process, and late joiner policy.

Informal discussion

The school understands that some parents may wish to discuss their child’s education with a school leader. To arrange a Zoom meeting with our Deputy head Mr. Boylan please click here, thank you.

Waiting List

Because very few school places are ever available at Cambridge Home School, parents can be waiting a considerable time before they are eligible for consideration by the Headmaster. This is of course acceptable should you wish to join the school in a year or two (perhaps your child is too young at present or won’t be leaving their present school for some time). To join the school’s waiting list please complete the school’s registration form selecting the ‘add us to the waiting list’ option, thank you. Click here to register – there is no admin fee for this.

Enhanced Application

Your child has the option of submitting a personal statement to our school Headmaster Dr. Page – email attaching their personal statement.  There is a non-refundable administration fee of £299 GBP for each personal statement, payable for the submission of personal statements  – click here to pay.

When school places are so limited, a thoughtful and passionate personal statement can make the difficult decision of allocating a school place easier for our Headmaster. Please explain why attending Cambridge Home School is so important to you and why you are a good candidate for the school to select. Additionally, we will require evidence of good grades in the form of an official grades transcript or recent school report.

Late Joiner Policy

Cambridge Home School generally only accepts pupils to start in September. This is due to the disruption to teaching and learning caused by students joining the school late in the academic year. However, in exceptional cases, the school may be prepared to accept late joiners. In such circumstances, parents must demonstrate their commitment to the school by paying the school fees for the remaining school terms and fees for the following academic year. There is an extremely high demand for the limited school places available each year and only the most committed parents are accepted.
