Reception Offers are made in order of date of registration, sixteen months ahead of entry. Once parents accept an offer (by agreeing to the terms of the parent contract and making payment of the deposit), children and parents have two opportunities to visit school at the Spring and Summer Stay and Play Events.
The process is outlined below with a timeline for Reception 2025 entry:
MAY 2024: RECEPTION 2025 OFFERS BEGIN
Receiving & Accepting Your Offer
We begin making offers sixteen months ahead of entry into Reception. Offers are sent out in order of date of registration (with siblings of current pupils given priority).
To secure the place, payment of your deposit will be due within 10 days of your offer, along with signed agreement to terms of parent contract.
Note: A place cannot be secured without payment of deposit and submission of the signed acceptance form (to agree to terms of parent contract).
FEBRUARY 2025: SPRING STAY & PLAY
Meet & Greet Stay & Play
All children whose places have been accepted are invited to school in February for a stay and play session. This is an opportunity to meet teachers and potential classmates.
Parents are asked to advise the school of any relevant updates in their child’s needs (medical or developmental) since time of registration.
Please refer to our Admissions Policy.
MARCH 2025: RECEPTION 2025 FIRST TERM’S FEES
Autumn Term Fees Due
Fees for the Reception class Autumn term are due by the end of the previous Spring term.
Fees are reviewed each year by Directors. Reception 2025 Autumn fees will be due at the new 2025/26 rate.
JUNE 2025: SUMMER STAY & PLAY
Welcome back Stay and Play
Children joining Reception in September and their parents are welcomed back to school.
Children meet their new teachers and play. Parents receive information to help prepare for entry to Reception in September.
Once again, parents are asked to advise school of any relevant updates in child’s needs (medical or developmental) to help prepare for the transition.
