Joining the Prep (ages 5 to 10)
Whilst most pupils normally start in the Autumn Term, we welcome applications to the Prep School throughout the year, as long as there is availability. Places in popular year groups such as Reception, Year 3 and Year 5 can be subject to waiting list.
All prospective pupils are invited for a ‘taster’ when they come into school and spend the day with their potential year group. There will be an informal assessment in literacy and numeracy at this time. Your child will be looked after by a ‘guardian angel’ (another pupil in their class who will stay with them all day) and you will have the opportunity to meet and speak to their class teacher.
After the taster you will receive a formal offer and be asked to secure your place by paying a deposit (which is returned against your final school bill). A New Pupil’s Pack will then be sent to you ahead of your child’s start date.
