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 Prep School Admissions Officer, Mrs Gabrielle Stubbs,  is here to help you every step of the way. Please do get in touch: / 020 8225 3021, or make an enquiry here.

Please note for Nursery and Reception term will begin 11 September 2023. 

We are currently full in Year 6 for September 2023 start. Any applications will be assessed for a limited number of waiting list places.

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. We will be reinstating home visits once an offer has been accepted so that your daughter can get to know us further in the comfort of her own home.

Entry to Years 3, 4, 5 and 6

Girls will be invited to a Ready for Prep assessment. They take online 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.

We are currently full in Year 6 for September 2023 start. Any applications will be assessed for a limited number of waiting list places.

Our final assessment date for Autumn 2023 entry to Year 3, 4 and 5 is:

  • Monday 22 May 2023

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.
