Admission to Prep School

Admission to the Prep School

Entry for our Prep school is normally at age 4 into Reception, where we aim to have a maximum class size 16 to 18 children. Entry is by assessment and your child will be invited to attend an assessment day before a place is offered. These assessment days normally take place throughout the Autumn term prior to starting school.

However, where space permits we are delighted to accept pupils into other year groups at the start of, and during, an academic year. If you are looking for a place in an older year group please contact us to discuss availability. We like to assess children for this type of entry by inviting them to school for a day to meet the other children within the class. During the day your son will be assessed both formally and informally by the class teacher.

A non -refundable registration fee of £50 will be charged at the time of registration/assessment.

Parents who elect to accept a place offered for their son must pay an acceptance fee of £700 in order for the place to be confirmed and guaranteed by the school.   From this payment £50 will be retained as our admissions fee and £150 will act as a deposit.  The £150 deposit will be returned when a pupil leaves the school at the end of Year 6, provided all commitments to the school have been met.  The remaining £500 is off-set as a pre-payment towards the first term’s school fees.

If the acceptance of a place is cancelled at any time, or for any reason, the acceptance fee of £700 is non-refundable.

 
Please contact the school office on 0208 866 2737 or e-mail on office@buckprep.org to arrange a tour of the school and an assessment for your child. We look forward to hearing from you.
