Joining our Nurseries (Ages 2-4)
Our Nursery Schools accept pupils from the age of two, with three termly start points in September, January and April. The timing of a child’s first day will be dependent on when their birthday falls.
We would advise registering early to secure a place in the nursery of your choice. Parents are able to register their child with us from birth.
Nursery children have priority access to the Prep School. There is an informal play-based assessment within their nursery setting (of which they are unaware) and places are offered before external candidates are invited to apply.
Joining our Prep (Ages 4-11)
For entry into Reception, parents can register their child at any stage prior to the formal assessment, which takes place in the year prior to entry (when children are aged three). This is led by the Headmistress in association with the Head of Nurseries.
Children from external nurseries are invited to attend an assessment morning on a Saturday in November, where they complete a range of activities to provide the school with information on their attainment level and social development.
For 8+ entry, papers are based on age-appropriate topics from the National Curriculum Key Stage 2.
There is an interview with the Headmistress during which time candidates are invited to talk about themselves. The expectation is that pupils entering the school at this point, would be at an age-appropriate National Curriculum level.
