Prep School Admission


Places are allocated on the basis of availability and on a first come first served basis. Girls and boys can join the Nursery rising three years old. Typically, children join in September, but we are happy to admit them throughout the year in the term of their third birthday.

All children in the term following their third birthday are eligible to receive a maximum of 15 hours early education per week regardless of parental income.

By the time a child joins the Reception class they will be expected to attend full time.

Assessment for Early Years is based on observing informal play in small groups through a Taster Day.


Assessment is based on observations within a class setting. The nature and formality of the assessment will vary according to the age of the girl.

Entry to years 1 and 2 is based on availability of places. There are no entrance tests, but upon receipt of an application form, girls will be invited to attend a Taster Day to give her a feel for the school and for an informal assessment.


Upon receipt of an application form, girls will be invited in for a Taster Day during which she will be required to sit tests in English and mathematics. Places are then offered on the basis of performance in these tests and a satisfactory reference from the current school.
