Admission of new boys

Has it always been and is it still the case that the admission of new boys at the start of the Michaelmas term is always a day or two after the rest of the school ? The much smaller Lent term intake was always on the same day as the others.

I don't think we had new girls any time other than the start of the school year. If I remember rightly, terms always started on a Friday and then the new girls would arrive on the Following Monday.

My apologies for the wrong title of this thread. It should of course have read Admission of new pupils.
