JOINING AT AGE 3 – PRE-PREP

Places to join the school at age 3 into the Nursery are allocated at the end of September each year. These are conditional places for children born during that academic year to join in the September after their third birthday. We recommend you apply early!

We are currently accepting applications for children born from 1st September 2020 to 31st August 2021 to join at age 3. Please send your applications in by Friday 17th September 2021.

We have a waiting list for any children born before 1st September 2020. 

  • We recommend that you apply within 1 month of birth.
  • Places are allocated based on how soon families apply after birth, with priority given to siblings of current pupils or pupils with provisional places and ensuring an even mix of boys and girls.
  • These places are conditional on attendance at a Stay and Play assessment about one year before your child would join Nursery. They will spend about an hour with a small group of children and will be observed interacting with one another. Parents will also be required to attend a meeting with a senior member of staff. If it is then felt that the child is physically, emotionally and socially ready to participate and progress, the offer of a place may be made.
