Entry Procedures

A prospectus is generally sent following an initial enquiry (either by telephone, e-mail, via our website or by letter) about possible places at Vinehall. Once a family has made an initial enquiry, we will keep them up to date with news and events, including an invitation to the next Open Morning. For families who are unable to attend an Open Morning, individual visits can be arranged.

The first stage in the formal admissions procedure is the completion and return of the registration form, together with payment of a registration fee of £50.

Once a child is registered they will automatically be invited to Vinehall during the year preceding the September entry for a taster day. For children applying for places in Year 3 upwards, we also ask them to sit short written assessments in English, Maths and Verbal Reasoning. We will also write to a child’s current school for a confidential reference and any offer of a place is subject to a satisfactory reference.

Children applying for places in our Pre Prep will be invited for a taster session, the length of the session being dependent on the age of the child.
