Admissions Process

Step 1
Book and attend an open morning:
We encourage prospective parents to see our school in action during one of our open events.  Open mornings are held during term-time. They start at 9:30am with a welcome from the Headmistress, followed by a school tour with a member of the senior leadership team and a Q&A session.

Step 2
Complete and return a registration form
To apply for a place at St. Nicholas Preparatory School please complete our online registration form together with payment of a non-refundable registration fee of £100.

Step 3
Invitation to attend a Readiness session / assessment
You will receive an email inviting your child to come in for a Readiness session/assessment (nursery to year 6) We are a non-selective school but we do assess potential pupils to determine their current academic level and how we can help them to fulfil their potential.

Nursery and Reception Readiness sessions– we invite all parents and their children to come in for a 30 min interview with the Head of Pre-Prep. This is a perfect opportunity for both the school and parents to get to know each other and discuss parents’ expectations.

Assessments for Year 1 to Year 6 pupils – children spend the whole day with us and take part in normal class activities. Lunch and snacks throughout the day will be provided.

Step 4
Offer of place
Further to the interview/taster session/assessment places are offered as soon as possible. Should the assessment provide further reason for reflection the Admissions Team will contact you for further discussion.
