Entry to Reception class at 4+
4+ entry September 2022 will have 60 places for children born between 1.9.17 and 31.8.18.
Our Pre-Prep is heavily over-subscribed and we are unfortunately unable to see all the children who make an application for assessment.
Children born before 1.9.17 are advised to consider entry to the Junior School at 7+ as it is very unlikely occasional places will be available for Pre-Prep.
