Our Admissions Team will also be happy to help you with any questions you may have about King Henry’s Prep School. You would be most welcome to one of our open days or events, or call us and arrange a visit to suit you.
The main points of entry to King Henry VIII Preparatory School are at the ages of 3, 4 or 7. Children may gain admission to the school at other ages subject to there being vacancies in specific year groups.

Nursery and Reception
The school is not academically selective for children joining in these years. However, all children must show a good level of competency for their age in spoken English and have sufficient independence to meet their personal needs during the school day.
Years 1 and 2
Children joining the school in Years 1 and 2 will be assessed, as to the suitability of King Henry VIII Preparatory School for them, during individual ‘taster days’.
Year 3 to 6 – Key Stage 2
Children joining the school from Year 3 onwards are required to be assessed more formally by way of an Entrance Assessment. This will take place on Saturday 8th February 2020 for entry in September 2020 and applications should be received by the end of January 2020. Sample questions are sent on receipt of a completed registration form and fee.
We welcome applicants at any time from boys and girls aged 3 to 11 years old.
