The parents or guardians of children who register an interest in having places in the Kindergarten/Junior School will have the names of their children included on a waiting list, where the date of receipt of their application will be recorded.

If, when the Head of the Junior School comes to make formal offers of places, there are more applications for the number of places available than can be accepted, preference will be given according to the following criteria applied in the order in which they are listed.

We warmly invite you to come for a visit, and discover for yourself what makes Campbell College Kindergarten and Junior School so unique.  Please contact Miss Morrow (Junior School Secretary) on 028 9076 3076 to arrange an appointment with Miss Brown (Head of Junior School).

Year 8

Admission to the College in Year 8 is by means of assessments provided by the Association for Quality Education AQE Ltd (CEA assessment) or Post Primary Transfer Consortium PPTC (GL Assessment).

Campbell is a test centre for both the CEA and GL Assessments, for which we provide as supportive an environment as possible. Those who elect to sit the assessments in Campbell do so in small classroom groups, not in large halls. A familiarisation day is held prior to the actual assessments so that the children can experience the environment, and meet supervising staff, so that they will be familiar with the actual administration on the day(s).

Find our Application Form in the 'Admissions Process' tab below. 

Mr Robinson will oversee all applications and is happy to offer any interested families a tour of the College and our Boarding facilities. You will also be provided with the opportunity to meet with the Headmaster, who, ultimately, is authorised to make available boarding places for each year group according to need.

Admissions must be contained within the School’s Total Enrolment Number as agreed with the Department of Education. Availability of places will, therefore, depend on the existing enrolment of the School at the time of application and the distribution of pupils across the different year groups.


Admissions Process

All applications will be processed by Mrs Leigh Crawford, , who will liaise with Mr Bert Robinson, Head of Boarding.

Supporting documentation will be requested as follows:

1.            Boarding Application Form

2.            School Reports

3.            Letter of Reference from present school

4.            An English Entrance Test for students whose first language is not English.

5.            A visit to the College for informal interview, or alternatively via Skype

Parents of International Boarders must nominate a guardian as part of the admissions procedure.

All students should have appropriate guardianship arrangements in place to allow them to be hosted outside the College during those times when the Boarding Department is closed for holidays, as necessary, during illness, when residency in a communal environment is not suitable, or for disciplinary reasons.

This is an essential criterion for admission.  Please click on the following link to download and complete the guardianship form. Once completed please send back to us.

Many international students will also require a visa and we would recommend that you visit the visa and immigration service website to check the regulations.
