Apply to the Prep School

Applying for a place at the Prep School is a smooth process.

1. Visit us:

We are pleased to offer private tours of the School and a meet and greet with our Head, Mr Tiley-Nunn.

Please contact our Prep Registrar Mrs Daisy Davidson to arrange a visit. This is the first step to joining us at the Prep School, as it is a great way to meet our staff and see first hand what our children get up to on a day-to-day basis. Additionally, you are welcome to view our Ashford Prep School video.

2. Register for a place:

Once you have visited the Prep School, you will need to register your child for a place. This can be done by completing our registration form and paying our non-refundable £100 registration fee.

3. Online Assessments:

Once registered, your child will be invited to an informal virtual interview with the Head, Mr. Tiley-Nunn, and will also be required to sit online assessments in Reading/English and Maths. At this stage, we will request to see the child’s previous school reports.

An online meeting can be arranged with your child’s prospective Head of Year to alleviate any worries you may have, and to discuss your child settling in.

4. School reference request:

With your permission, a reference from your child’s current school is requested.

5. Accept the offer of a place:

If your child is offered a place, completion of the acceptance pack (which will be shared at the time of offer) and payment of a refundable deposit of £500 should be made in order to secure the place.
