Children can join our Hendon Prep family after their second birthday when they can enter our SIS rated ‘outstanding’ nursery.
Our nursery children are given first consideration for Reception Class places however we do have an intake of Reception children who have not been enrolled in the Nursery and, as a non-selective school, these places are offered on a first come first served basis, it is therefore advisable to register your interest for a Reception place as early as possible.
Year 1 and upwards
Chance vacancies do sometimes become available in Years 1 and above, in this instance, after registering, children are invited into the school for a ‘taster session’ where they will spend some time with their future classmates and be informally assessed in Maths and English to see whether we can meet their educational needs.
Our girls leave the school at the end of Year 6 when the vast majority of them sit 11+ examinations for entry into some of the most prestigious schools in the country.
Boys stay with us for an extra two years following the Common Entrance Curriculum and sit 13+ examinations, again going on to some of the most selective schools in the country.
