Admissions Overview

UCS Pre-Prep is a selective school. The number of pupils registered will normally well exceed the number of available places. It is the obligation of the School to make its selection process equally accessible to all pupils regardless of their ethnicity, religion, disability or background.

The main entry point to the School is at Reception (age 4+). Occasional places may become available in other year groups.

Finding out more about the School

The Headmistress and staff are pleased to welcome families to visit the school before deciding whether or not to register their children for admission. Such visits should always be booked in advance through the School Office. It is preferred that parents are not accompanied by their children on these pre-registration visits.

Admissions 4+

Children are eligible for admission to the Reception class when they are 4 years old. Their 4th birthday will have fallen before 31st August in the academic year before they hope to join the School.

To register to be considered for a place  please complete the online School's Registration Form, and a pay a registration fee.

You can register your child at any time after they are born but applications close the year preceding the intended start in September i.e. if your child is due to start Reception in 2018 then the applications close at the end of September 2017.

Admissions at other points in the school

Although Reception is our main point of entry, we also have occasional places at Year 1 (5+) and Year 2 (6+).  We ask for registrations to be made during our general admissions time.  However,  in some circumstances, applications can be made at a later date depending on places becoming available.
