Please use the online registration form on this page (see below to apply by post). There is £100 non-refundable registration fee which is used for administrative purposes. During term-time, online registrations will be processed within 5 working days from receipt of the form. If you are overseas nationals, before registering, please see section on left.
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 one year before the Nursery start date, which ever is earlier. 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.
Please note that a place in Reception is not dependent on accepting a place in the Nursery.
Registration for entry to Reception can be made at any time (but not before birth). On receipt of the registration you will receive written notification of your child’s admissions position. If the entry date is 2 years or more in advance and provided that there is no waiting list in operation, you will receive a Reserved Place. A formal offer will be issued and a deposit will become due approximately one year before the Nursery start date or 18 months before entry to Reception (if a Nursery place is not being taken). On acceptance of the offer and payment of a deposit, it will become a Confirmed Place.
Registrations for occasional vacancies in Year 1 upwards should be accompanied by the child’s latest school report from their current school. If we have no place available immediately, registrations may join our waiting list.
When a place becomes available, we will arrange an Assessment Day for those pupils seeking a place in Year 3 upwards or a taster session for those joining lower years. The Assessment Day will usually involve spending time in class and a one to one assessment in English and Mathematics. There might also be a short interview with the Head. The school will also seek a Confidential Report from the child’s existing school before an offer of a place is made.
Please note that following the new Pre-Prep Development the school now offers three-form entry in Reception and has phased out the 7+ entry point.
Overseas nationals entering the UK, who wish to apply for a place must have a right of abode or the conditions of their immigration status must permit them to access UK education.
Children aged under 18 are classed as dependant children if they are the children of foreign nationals who have settled status in the UK, or who are entering the UK on a work visa or Student visa, or who are part of a family entering or residing in the UK under the immigration route for British National (Overseas) citizens and their dependants. These children are entitled to enter the country with their family, or to join their family and study at a state-funded or independent school once in the UK.
Foreign nationals cannot use the 6-month Standard Visitor visa, or 11-month Short-term Study (English language) visa, to enter the UK to enrol as a pupil at the school.
