Prep School Admissions

Admissions

Applications are accepted for all three year groups in Pre-Prep and children can join us at any point during the school year (depending on availability).

Entry into the Lower and Middle Pre-Prep (Nursery):

There is no formal assessment procedure for our Woodland Pre-Prep but all pupils join us for a taster morning before we offer a place. This enables us to get to know each other better, enjoy the activities and start to become familiar with the setting.

Entry into the Upper Pre-Prep (Reception):

Children typically join Reception by coming to a January Taster Session, however these can be arranged at any point in the academic year.
