11+ Entrance Examinations start Tuesday 1st November - details will be sent to you in due course.

Nursery & Prep

We welcome admissions enquiries throughout the year for entry into any year group and can arrange a personal tour at any time, so there is no need to wait for an Open Morning to come and see us in action.

As a family school, we are proud that girls who join Prep School in Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 will be considered for automatic transfer to Senior School, without the requirement to sit out 11+ examination.

Our Registrar, Mrs Julie White, is here to help you every step of the way. Please do get in touch: / 020 8225 3001, or make an enquiry here.

Step 1

Come and get to know us. You can either book online for an Open Event or it's easy to arrange a personal tour with a member of the Prep School leadership team. If you want, you can do both! We look forward to meeting you.

Step 2

To apply for a place, please complete our online application form. You will need to pay a non-refundable registration fee of £125 (or £175 for overseas applications).

Step 3

Entry to Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2

We do not have entrance assessments for our younger girls as we believe that their ability cannot be meaningfully tested at such a young age.

Instead, you and your daughter will be invited to spend some time with us to confirm that we are the right fit for you. Your daughter will join one of our classes for a short session, or for the whole day if she would like. At the same time, you will also meet a member of the Prep School leadership team. We encourage you to bring your daughter's last school report, if she has one, to share with us.

Entry to Years 3, 4, 5 and 6

Girls will be invited to a Ready for Prep assessment. They take short tests in verbal and non-verbal reasoning and they have an informal meeting with a member of the Prep School leadership team. No preparation is needed for either the tests or the meeting.

  • 9+ testing day on the morning of Monday, 14th November
  • 10+ testing on the morning of Monday, 21st November
  • 7+ and 8+ testing on the morning of Monday, 28th November

Our assessment is designed to be a fun, exciting experience. You only need to bring a book your daughter has enjoyed reading, her last school report and something she is proud to talk about. Girls who enter our Prep school in Years 3-6 are also guaranteed a place into our Senior School.

Step 4

For entry up to Year 2, we will be in touch to confirm our offer shortly after your daughter's learning session in school. Places are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Girls gain automatic entry into Year 3.

Girls applying for entry to Years 3 and above will be offered a place subject to the results of our Ready for Prep assessment. The offer will also indicate if your daughter has been guaranteed a place in our Senior School.

We look forward to welcoming you to Sutton High School!

Specialist teachers from an early age is a huge advantage for learning and gets the girls familiar with a wider range of teachers to learn from.
