Early Years

Generally girls join the nursery class at two and a half in the term that they turn 3.

Girls joining in September need to attend a minimum of three sessions (one session = either morning or afternoon attendance) a week, but have the opportunity of signing up for as many sessions as they wish. For some girls this may mean that they attend full-time. In addition, nursery girls can attend Breakfast Club and After School Care.  

The sessions available for those girls entering at the spring and summer terms will be dependent on numbers in our current nursery class. At present the sessions are Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.

Attendance is flexible in the Nursery class as the girls get used to their new environment and settle in. During the year they are expected to increase the number of sessions they attend so that by the time they enter the Reception class they are attending full time. 

Early Years Information  

Pupils join the Reception class in the September after their fourth birthday.     

Prep School

Prep School Information 

For entry into Nursery, Reception and Years 1 and 2, places are awarded according to availability and there are no entrance tests. The School operates a registrations’ list and we recommend that parents register their daughter in advance to ensure a place is available.      

Girls wishing to join Years 3-6 are invited to attend a Taster Day and, during their visit, sit tests in English and mathematics. Places are then offered on the basis of performance in these tests. Prospective boarders are invited for a Taster Day and overnight stay to give them a feel for the boarding community.
