Grimsdell - Admissions


Grimsdell is a co-educational Pre-Prep School for children aged 3-7. Entry is available at 3+ (Nursery) and 4+ (Reception)

3+ and 4+ Entry 2021

Registration for 3+ and 4+ entrance for September 2021 is still open; however, as our initial registration list is now oversubscribed (first 70 children to register are placed on the initial registration list. All children on the initial registration list are invited for an interview) we have opened the reserve registration list. We are unable to guarantee that children who have been placed on the reserve list will be invited for an interview and activity session.

All children placed on the reserve registration list for 3+ 2021, prior to the commencement of the 3+ assessments in November and who are not invited for an informal interview, will automatically be considered for 4+ 2021 entry.

The initial list for 3+ and 4+ 2021, and subsequent years of entry, is open.

Entry into Grimsdell Pre-Prep

There are two main points of entry into the School: 3+ (Nursery) and 4+ (Reception). Occasionally there are places available in other years – these are called ‘Chance Vacancies’.

When choosing a school we strongly advise all parents and prospective pupils to pay a personal visit to the School at one of our regular open mornings so that they can see the School’s facilities and meet the members of staff and current pupils.

Register your child 

Offers for our 32 part time Nursery places will be made shortly after our interviews in November of the year before entry. Places for our Reception classes will be offered in February after our interview process has taken place during the month of January. There are approximately 20 places available in Reception.

Children on our initial registration list will be invited to take part in a half hour activity session and interview. Priority for places is given to suitable siblings.
