Welcome to Admissions at Terra Nova School
Whether you are already in Cheshire or considering a move to the area, the team at Terra Nova School hopes to be a valuable resource in helping you to find the right school for your children.
Our role is to help to provide you with as much information as possible to enable you to make the best decision for you and your family.
Much of our communication with you will take place by email or telephone, but nothing can replace a visit to the school. We actively encourage you to visit us, to tour the facilities and get a feel for the engaging community. We also encourage you to bring your child/ren with you on a tour, if possible. Please find an overview of the admissions process below:
