Prep School Admissions

Our Preparatory School is made up of our Reception Class and Years 1 to 6. We are a selective school and therefore places are offered at the discretion of the Headteacher and following satisfactory completion of a taster and assessment day (or observation session in the case of Reception applications).  As a guideline, applicants should be performing academically at nationally expected levels.

We welcome applications mid-year for all year groups, subject to the availability of places.

Contact or call us on 01372 457077 for more information and to make an enquiry.
