Six Steps to Admissions

There are four main points of entry into the School: Nursery (3+) and Reception (4+)Year 3 (7+ girls only) and Year 5 (9+ girls only).  Occasionally there are places available in other years and it is always worth contacting us to ask for the latest position.

Our boys usually progress to Warwick Junior School across the campus at the end of Year 2.
On the basis of their progress at Warwick Prep, and their aptitude, girls will be offered a guaranteed place at King's High. If there are any concerns, the Entrance Examination will be used to determine a place, as with candidates outside the Foundation. 

Step 1 - Get in Touch

We can talk you through what we might be able to offer your child, current availability of places and answer any questions that you might like to ask about Warwick Prep. You can also request a prospectus from us to help you find out more about what makes Warwick Prep School so special.

Step 2 - Visit the School

We hold regular Open Events throughout the year. Due to current restrictions with visitors on our foundation campus, we will be holding a number of virtual events during the Autumn Term. For more information, please contact our Admissions Team at admissions@warwickprep.com or call 01926 491 545.

Step 3 - Register your Child

Complete and return the registration form, together with the registration fee of £75.00 and a copy of your child's full birth certificate (which lists both parents), to our Admissions Department, Warwick Preparatory School, Banbury Road, Warwick, CV34 6PL. 

If you wish to pay your registration fee over the phone, then please contact Finance on 01926 735414. 

  • All registrations are recorded in the order in which the form and registration fee are received. Early registration is therefore recommended.
  • You can register your children from birth. 

Step 4 - Arrange an Assessment or Taster Day

Assessments

Girls joining Warwick Prep from Year 3 onwards are required to sit our assessment, based on the National Curriculum of Maths and English. 

  • Assessments for Year 3 + will take place on Tuesday 19 January
  • Assessments for Year 5+ will take place on Wednesday 20 January 

Satisfactory school references and reports are required for all children being considered for a place at Warwick Prep.

Taster Days

Children joining mid-year into the Pre-Prep Department in Years 1 and 2 attend a taster day (or morning).

For further information or to register your child please contact the admissions team on 01926 491545 or admissions@warwickprep.com.

Step 5 - Await your offer letter

The first round of Nursery and Reception places are offered a year ahead of the proposed September entry. Offers for Nursery and Reception places for September 2021 have already been made, however, we are still taking applications for those, and subsequent years, and warmly invite you to contact the Admissions team, admissions@warwickprep.com, who will be delighted to answer any questions.

Further places in Nursery and Reception can be offered throughout the year as spaces become available.

Offers to join Years 3 and 5 are made following the Entrance Assessment Days. Assessments can be arranged for entry part way through the year if places are available.

Offers to join other year groups are made, as and when, places become available.

Step 6 - Accept the place and get ready to start!

Once you have formally accepted a place we will be in touch with all the information you need to ensure that your child's start at Warwick Prep is as happy and straightforward as possible.
