Admission & fees

There are three main points of entry into the school, in the autumn term of each academic year:

  • Kindergarten: For children turning 3 years old during the academic year (e.g., for children born between 1 September 2018 and 31 August 2019 for entry in September 2021). Subject to availability, early joining is possible from the term after a child has turned 2 years old (e.g., children born between 1 September and 31 December 2020 can join from January 2022). Kindergarten operates at 99 Herne Hill and is by far the largest entry point.
  • Pre-Reception: For children turning 4 years old, at our main site.
  • Reception: For children turning 5 years old, at our main site.

Other places are chance vacancies.

Since the date of registration plays an important role in our entry procedures, we highly recommend parents that for their peace of mind they register their child as soon as they consider the possibility of applying for a place – however far in the future this may appear.
