Admissions

Admissions Process:

There are three main points of entry into the school. Children can join Infant Community at age 2, Montessori Nursery at age 3 or our Reception class at age 4+. Children who attend Montessori Nursery are given priority entry to Reception at Norfolk House School.

If you are interested in a place at the school for your child, we urge you to apply very early as our waiting lists fill quickly. You can download the school’s Admissions Policy for further information.

Occasionally there are places available in other year groups - these are called chance vacancies and if you are interested in this point of entry please contact the Admissions Office. Pupils applying for a chance vacancy will be interviewed and tested and a reference will be requested from your child’s current school.

Request a Prospectus:

You can request a copy of the school prospectus by completing our Request a Prospectus Form or contacting the Admissions Office.

Visit Norfolk House:

If you would like to visit the school, we ask that you complete a school application form, which can be requested from the school or completed online via the link below, and return it with a registration fee of £50. We then invite interested families to a meeting with the Head Teacher, where he will also give a tour of the school.

Offers for places at the school are made following the meeting with the Head Teacher.


Provision of information for parents of current and prospective pupils:

The Education (Independent School Standards) Regulations and later amendments place a statutory duty on schools to provide certain information to parents of current and prospective pupils. Norfolk House School does so willingly and encourages any parent to contact the school with requests for information or guidance. School documentation, including policies, guidance and schemes of work are a valuable source of information and we are pleased to make them available, either through the Admissions Office or on the School’s website here.

The table below lists all policies and procedures available to parents.
