3+ Entry 2021

Registration for 3+ entrance for September 2021 has now closed. If you register now, your child will be placed on our reserve registration list and will be invited to an interview in November only if another child withdraws.

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+ 2022 entry.

Offers for our 32 part-time Nursery places will be made shortly after our interviews in November of the year before entry.

4+ Entry 2021

Registration for 4+ entrance for September 2021 is still open, however we only have a limited number of spaces left on the schedule so we cannot guarantee that you will be offered an interview.

Interviews will take place in January.

Registration lists for entry for subsequent years from September 2020 onwards are open now.

Places for our Reception classes will be offered in February after our interviews in January. There are approximately 20 places available in Reception.

Additional Information

  • Priority for places is given to suitable siblings.
  • Occasionally there are places available in other years, known as ‘Chance Vacancies’.  Contact us to find out about possible chance vacancies and we can provide current information.
  • Children on our initial registration list will be invited to take part in a half hour activity session and interview with the class teacher. Parents will accompany them during this.

Entry Process Into Grimsdell Pre-Prep
