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 a waiting list.
The first step is to find out more about Leweston Prep either by joining one of our Open Events or visiting to meet the Head.
Sadly we cannot currently offer our usual ‘taster days’ but from the start of the summer term families will be welcome for a socially distanced tour of the school. Prospective pupils will then be invited to an informal, online interview with the Head, Miss Phillips. There will opportunities later in the summer for them to meet other pupils in their prospective year group.
After the interview we will request a reference from your current school. We are very aware that children have had a different experience of school in the last few months in both an academic and pastoral sense, and we will be sensitive to this. We will specifically ask schools how children have been affected, if at all, over the period so we can able to take this into consideration.
It is at this stage that offers are made. This is typically by way of a letter to parents. Offers may be open to acceptance for a limited time only. You will be asked to secure your place by completing the Acceptance Form and paying a deposit (which is returned against your final school bill). Joining information will then be shared with you ahead of your child’s start date.
If you have questions about joining the Senior School please visit our Knowledge Base, a library of frequently asked questions which can tell you more about the admissions process as well as life at the school.
