Entry to Nursery and Reception

Nursery places are offered to girls looking at staying on into Reception in the first instance. We also accept boys into the Nursery, if they are brothers of current students, sons of Marist staff or sons of Marist Alumni. Our Nursery offers both term-time only and full-time places, but please note that we are currently only accepting ‘Rising Threes’, (children who are turning three within their first academic term at Nursery), on a full-time basis.

There is no formal assessment for entry into Nursery and Reception. Children attend a taster session before a place is offered and for those who have previously attended an educational setting, we request a report of their learning journey from their current school or nursery.


Entry to Years 1-6

Our main entry points are Reception, Year 3 and Year 5.  For applications for other year groups or mid-year admissions, please contact us for up-to-date availability.

We welcome you to register your child for entry at any point from birth. You will then be notified when a place becomes available in these years. Should a place not arise for a child’s requested term of entry, the registration will roll over to the next academic year until a place becomes available.

When a place is offered, a standard deposit of £500 for nursery and £1000 for Prep is payable upon acceptance. This deposit is retained until your child leaves the school, when it will be credited to the final account for fees and any extras which may be due at that time. The deposit is non-refundable if a pupil does not take up a place at the school.

Once your place is confirmed, a parent pack and orientation information will be sent out to you.
