Your daughter is learning and growing! She has gained valuable skills during her formative educational years and is ready to progress in her school journey.
Choosing the right school for your daughter is such an important decision – and may be a challenging one too! To ensure that our admissions process is as simple and convenient as possible, we have developed a step-by-step guide to assist you as you apply for your daughter to join the St John’s D.S.G. Junior School family.
STEP 1: CONTACT US AND SAY HI!
If you are considering St John’s D.S.G. as the school of choice for your daughter, we would love to hear from you! Please contact our lovely Admissions Secretary, Mrs Jenny Westwood, on 033 386 8304 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can answer any questions you have.
STEP 2: BOOK A TOUR OF THE SCHOOL
We have no doubt that you will want to see our “small school with big heart” in action, to get a real sense of what makes St John’s D.S.G. special. You are welcome to book a school tour (at a time convenient for you) by clicking on the link below.

STEP 4: INTERVIEW AND ASSESSMENT
Once your application form has been received, Mrs Jenny Westwood will email you to confirm receipt. For Grade 1 placements, the application process will only commence in February the year before entry. Parents are invited to an interview with our Junior School Headmistress whilst one of our teachers spends time getting to know your daughter in a friendly and relaxed environment. Depending on the availability of space, parents of Grade 2 – 7 applicants may be invited to an interview with our Junior School Headmistress and an appointment for your daughter to interact with one of our teachers will be made for the same time.
STEP 5: PLACEMENTS
All Grade 1 applicants will be informed via email at the end of March the year before entry if they have been successful in obtaining a place at the school. For all other grade applicants, the school will be in contact after a couple weeks from the interview and assessment.
