Joining St Faith’s

Joining St Faith’s Prep is a simple and straightforward process.

St Faith’s Prep is a non-selective school. Our main entry points are Nursery and Reception, although children do join us in other year groups where spaces allow. Where children join the school part-way through their education, we work closely with the child, the parents and their previous school to ensure a smooth transition.

We invite parents and their children to visit, perhaps attend one of our termly weekend Open Days, and come for a tour with the Headmaster on a normal school day.  Your child will be invited to a taster day, so they can experience life in our happy and inspiring school. We cater for all academic needs at St Faith’s Prep.

Once you have filled in a registration form, and paid a registration fee, you will be invited to an informal interview with your child, and as long as we are confident that we are the right fit for your child and can really help them meet his or her potential, we will make an offer of a place. Your child will then receive a Year Group Handbook, which gives lots of useful and interesting information to help pupils joining St Faith’s settle in quickly and well. For those pupils who are starting school for the first time, a programme of familiarisation and preparation takes place during the Summer Term.

The school office is open throughout the year, including school holidays, and our helpful staff are available to answer any questions you might have.

If you would like your child to be considered for admission, please complete our Registration Form. Details of our Fees can be found here. All admissions are subject to our Admissions Policy and Terms & Conditions.

"We moved our children from a local state school to St Faith's, where they completed their primary education. It was a decision we never looked back from as St Faith's offered an education, environment and opportunities that were incomparable. Now we have a daughter in reception class, the warm and nurturing schooling she receives is priceless." Current parent
