Entrance Procedure

All pupils should be registered for entry to the School on the School Registration Form, a copy of which can be found on the Registration Form link or you can request a hard copy from the School. There is a single registration fee per family of £75.00.

For entry to one of our Reception classes at the start of the academic year, places are allocated on the basis of ‘first come, first served’.

For entry to the Pre-Preparatory Department at any other stage, subject to the availability of space, pupils would usually spend the day in school during which they are assessed informally for basic numeracy and literacy skills.  In the current COVID-19 times, however, we are unable to offer the opportunity for this familiarisation day. Instead, contact will be made with the child’s current school or nursery before a place is offered.

For entry to the Prep School in Years 3 to 8, children would usually spend an informal assessment day in School prior to being offered a place.  In the current coronavirus climate, however, we are unable to offer the opportunity for this assessment day. Instead, contact will be made with the child’s current school and a reference will be sought, either oral or written, before a place is offered. There are generally up to twelve places available for entry in Year 3, entry into Years 4 to 8 is subject to the availability of places.

Prior to entry, parents are asked to confirm their registration and complete an Acceptance Form based on our Standard Terms and Conditions. At this time, parents are requested to pay a deposit of £500 to secure a place in the School. 50% of this deposit is deducted from the first term’s school fees and the remaining 50% is deducted from the final fee account at the end of Year 8.

There is currently a fee discount offered for families with more than 2 children in the school at any one time of 20% for a 3rd child and 30% for any subsequent children.
