We are a distinctive school with a unique reputation in the region and widely respected well beyond the South East. We are confident about making changes when we know that they will benefit our pupils, and strong enough to successfully combine educational traditions with contemporary practices and philosophies.

There are three main entry points for parents wishing their children to join Gad's Hill.
They are at Nursery/Pre-school level and in Years 6 and 7. The school does accept entry into other school years, however in such circumstances, entry is decided on a case by case basis.
If you are interested in sending your son or daughter to Gad’s Hill, your first step should be to contact the school via email or call our admissions secretary on 01474 822366 to request a prospectus and application pack.
If you then decide that you are interested in your child attending Gad’s Hill, you should fill in a registration form that can be completed onlineor found in your application pack. Your child will then be added to a waiting list for the relevant year.
When a space becomes available you and your child will be invited for an informal discussion with the Headmaster.
Assessment of ability, potential and suitability will take place by interview, entrance exam and/or taster day. A taster day enables your son or daughter to attend the school for a day and decide if Gad’s is the school for them and vice versa. If successful an offer of a place will then be made in writing.
