Prep School Admissions

Our Preparatory School is made up of our Reception Class and Years 1 to 6. We are a selective school and, in general, we expect applicants to be performing academically at nationally expected levels.

We welcome applications mid-year for all year groups, subject to the availability of places. For Years 4, 5 and 6, you will be asked to visit the School, meet with our Headteacher and then your daughter will be invited to a taster and assessment day.  Age-appropriate assessments are undertaken in reading, writing and mathematics by the Head of the Prep School during this day and consideration is given to a girl’s social integration and emotional development. A final offer is then made, subject to the outcome of this day.

Contact or call us on 01372 457077 for more information and to make an enquiry. For applications in Year 3 and Reception entry, see below.
