Entry procedure into the school

Our new school opened in September 2015 and we have spaces in the majority of year groups. Please contact the school's registrar, Sara Mathieson (01962 835792 or mathiesons@stswithuns.com) if you are interested in a place in the 2016/2017 academic year for your child.

Children who enter the school in the Nursery and Reception years do so in the September following their third and fourth birthdays respectively. Girls remain until they are 11 and are prepared for entrance examinations, including Common Entrance, to a variety of independent senior schools, including St Swithun’s senior school. We welcome boys throughout the pre-prep, although traditionally a number of our boys leave at the end of Nursery.

On enquiry, prospective parents and children are invited to meet the Headmistress and have a tour of the school.  There is a registration form in the prospectus pack and one can also be downloaded here. There is a non-refundable registration fee of £75.

Following registration, parents are informed whether a school place is available or if they have been placed on the waiting list. Places for September entry are offered in the preceeding autumn term. Assuming places are available, mid-year entry is also welcome for the majority of year groups. When a place is offered for a child, a deposit of £500 is required to secure this. (£250 of which will be offset against the first term’s fees for those taking up a place. The remaining £250 is deducted from the final term’s fees).
