Reception to Year 2

Age 4 - 7

Year 3 to Year 8
Age 7 upwards

Nursery (age 3 - 4)

Children join the Nursery in the September following their third birthday, which is the year prior to joining Reception. 

Nursery places are usually offered on a first come first served basis 18 months before the nursery start date. There is no additional registration process for the Nursery. On registration for Reception entry your child will automatically be offered a place in the Nursery, if places are still available at that time or 18 months before the Nursery start date.

Please note that a place in Reception is not dependent on accepting a place in the Nursery.

Reception (age 4+)

Entry to Reception is non-selective and is on a first come first served basis. The school currently has places for up to 60 children split across three year groups. 

Waiting List

We operate a waiting list and parents should register once they have visited the school.

Mid-Year Entry

Admission at other ages is dependent upon the availability of places. Children seeking an occasional vacancy will be interviewed and assessed once a place becomes available.

All children in Year 2 automatically transfer to the Prep School. Note that following the opening of our new Pre-prep we now offer three-form entry in Reception and have phased out 7+ entry.
