We normally offer a variety of opportunities for you to do this, both formally and informally and we aim to make the whole process as simple and as stress-free as possible.

School Tours and Applications during the COVID-19 emergency

Please be aware that despite the current unusual and challenging circumstances, we are still able to answer enquiries and accept applications for places at Croydon High School, subject to there being spaces available in the year groups required.

We are also able to arrange for on-line testing for immediate entry; however visits to the school are obviously not possible at the moment.

We have a Virtual Open Morning for the Senior School which you can view HERE.
If you are interested in applying for Sixth Form for September 2021, please view our virtual tour  HERE
If you are considering applying to our Junior School, we are able to offer a limited number of tours which will be carried out in a strict socially distanced fashion. Find out more HERE

If you have any general questions about the admissions process, please email our Admissions Department – admissions@cry.gdst.net

Junior School

Visiting the Junior School is an important part of the decision making process. Whether this is your daughter’s first step in to Nursery or Reception or if she is transferring from another school, this is your opportunity to see first-hand all that Croydon High Juniors can offer her. We hope to be able to offer increased opportunities for you to do this but at this stage, cannot confirm if this will be virtual or in person.

Here are some of the key dates for your diary.

Similarly, with Senior and Sixth Form entry, we recommend visiting the school either on an Open Day or with a personal tour on a working day, giving you the chance to meet our inspirational teachers and to see how the school community works together. Whilst this is not currently possible, we are working hard to simulate the experience on-line with our virtual open events. More details below.
