Preparatory Admissions

Pre-Reception (age 3+)

Entry to Pre-Reception is by parent meeting and a trial session, held at the child's nursery/ pre-school. If the child does not currently attend a nursery/ pre-school the trial session will take place at New Hall. Preference will be given to those seeking a full-time, rather than part-time, place and there is a minimum requirement of 6 sessions per week. A session is either a morning or an afternoon.

Entry into other year groups

Parents are welcome to register their children to enter Reception and Years 1-6 in the Preparatory School, however, day places only become available in these year groups should a current pupil leave the Preparatory School. In the circumstance that a space arises, a child shall be selected from the waiting list, taking into account the school’s Admissions Policy.

Additional full or weekly boarding places are available from Year 3 onwards.

Should a place not become available for a child’s requested term of entry, the registration will roll over to the next academic year until a place becomes available. Should a child reach Year 6 and a place has not become available in the Preparatory School, parents shall be contacted regarding Senior School entry. There is no need to re-register for Senior School entry.
