There is no formal entrance assessment for entry into the Kindergarten or Pre-Prep. However, for Kindergarten and Reception, entry is based, in part, on reports and a visit to the school. For children entering Years 1 and 2 entry is based on an informal assessment plus reports. 

Children entering the Pre-Prep will be invited to spend a taster/assessment morning with their current cohort. The majority of children in the Pre-Prep will make the transition to the Prep School, Year 3 (age 7) as a matter of course.

Children not in the Pre-Prep seeking places in the Prep School are assessed prior to being offered a place. This, together with previous school reports, enables us to gain an holistic view of your child's current performance and potential.

A place is offered in writing as soon as possible after the assessment. When a place is offered and there are learning support needs, a member of the Learning Support team will make contact with parents.
