The Admissions Process

Our main entry points are listed below. However, we are very happy to take children in to other year groups if a space is available.

Entry into Little Chicks, Kindergarten and Reception

Children enter Little Chicks in the term in which they turn 3, Kindergarten in the September before their 4th birthday or Reception in the September before their 5th birthday.  
Upon receipt of a registration form, an offer of a place will be given and a deposit of £400 is payable at least three terms in advance of entry (or immediately if this date is less than three terms ahead at the time of registration).

Entry at Year 3

Upon receipt of a completed registration form and non refundable fee of £100, a taster/assessment day will be arranged. Following this, an offer of a place will be based upon the appropriateness of the school for the child by agreement between the school and parents. Once an offer is given, the place will be confirmed upon receipt of a deposit of £400.
