Entry at 4+

We understand how young your child is when she meets us for 4+ testing, and we’re sensitive to her needs. We work with her in a comfortable environment surrounded by the kinds of activities and toys that she may have grown accustomed to in a nursery class. By talking with your daughter, sharing activities and stories and working with her on one-to-one tasks, we can gain an insight into whether the Prep would be a good fit for her. Your daughter will spend a little over an hour with us and will feel relaxed and at ease with our welcoming staff.

The entry tests take place in January of the academic year that your child wishes to start school.

To register your child for a place at the Prep School please complete the Registration Form using the link below. Your registration is confirmed by paying a non-transferable registration fee of £100. This can be done by bank transfer using the account details on the Registration Form, or by sending a cheque with your daughter’s name written on the back as the reference.

If you’d like to know more or to arrange a visit to the school with your daughter, please contact our Prep Admissions Coordinator, Andrea James, on 01582 839260.
