Pre-Prep schools are independent schools educating children until Year 2 (age 7), before they move up to the affiliated prep school in Year 3. Pre-preps offer a smaller, nurturing environment for young learners to thrive. The differences between pre-prep schools and primary schools are very significant, and explored in this blog if you are deciding between the two.
Admissions (ages 2-7)
Millfield Pre-Prep entry is possible for all year groups. We will consider entry in January and April as well as in September.
If you would like to consider a place at Millfield Pre-Prep for your child, the first thing to do is to come and visit us. We would be delighted to give you a tour of the school and if you think your child would enjoy Millfield, you can formally apply for a place by completing the online Registration Form. If applicable, we will then request a reference from your current school; on receipt of this, we will invite you to bring your child for a taster day. We would then formally offer a place and the return of the Acceptance Form completes the entry procedure. You may, of course, enter your child for future years, but we would not normally complete the paperwork until the year preceding admission.
Two-year-olds may enter the term after their second birthday. Thereafter, children may enter at anytime throughout the academic year.
