Entry Requirements

A pupil can enter our Nursery department from three years of age; earlier entry may be permitted based on necessary social and developmental skills.

Entry in Nursery to Year 2 is non-selective.

For entry to Years 3 to 6, pupils are invited to stay for a day with their current Year Group. There is an assessment with the Academic Deputy Head, involving Reading, Spelling, Maths and Non-verbal Reasoning, to ascertain the child’s academic levels. If Additional Educational Needs are identified then we will contact the parents and proceed appropriately.

We list below the year groups and their respective ages:

Year Groups  Age
Nursery 3 - 4 years
Reception 4 - 5 years
Year 1 5 - 6 years
Year 2 6 - 7 years
Year 3 7 - 8 years
Year 4 8 - 9 years
Year 5 9 - 10 years
Year 6 10 - 11 years
