Most children enter Eton End either at age 3 into our Nursery or at age 4 into the Reception year group. The earliest age we accept children is in the term of their third birthday as a rising three into our Nursery Fledglings group. For other year groups this is subject to place availability and assessment.
Upon initial enquiry, parents are sent a school prospectus together with relevant information, and an invitation to tour the school and meet the Headmistress. After this visit and once the decision has been made for Eton End School, the registration should be completed at the earliest opportunity and returned with a non-refundable £100 registration fee.
The child’s name is then placed on our Admissions List (or Waiting List). We will contact families two terms before the child is due to join, when we offer firm places, in chronological order of the date of registration. At this point we ask for an acceptance deposit of £300 which guarantees the place. This amount is refunded on the final account after your child has left the school.
Children entering the Nursery and Reception are not required to undergo any form of testing although they are invited to spend time at the school before joining. Children entering other year groups are invited to visit the school for a day, to spend time with their peer group and undergo age-appropriate assessment before a place can be formally offered.
Class sizes are small to allow individual attention and we have setting in English and Maths for the Upper School children.
When should we apply?
It is never too early to apply, and never too late to enquire. We are pleased to talk to you about availability of places at all times. If you would like to discuss any aspect of our admissions procedure, please contact our Registrar, Karen Williams.
