St Christopher’s is a non-selective nursery and pre-prep school with places offered in order of registration. We do give priority to siblings of pupils already enrolled in the school.

Registration

It is never too soon to begin your search for the perfect nursery and school. We recommend an early view to enable registration while places are still available to avoid disappointment.

The Admissions Process

  • Upon receipt of a completed Registration Form and a non-refundable fee of £75 we will be delighted to confirm that your child has been recorded as a Registered Pre-Admissions pupil.
  • Entry into Nursery is in order of registration with priority given to siblings of pupils already enrolled in the school. Pupils joining our Nursery are expected to progress through the School.
  • If a place is available, on receipt of a completed Registration Form, an Offer Letter with Acceptance Form will be sent to you.
  • The Acceptance Form should be completed and returned, along with a £750 deposit, within 2 weeks in order to secure the place. Please note that the deposit will be refunded against the final term’s invoice when your child leaves at the end of Year 2, or sooner (subject to the terms and conditions on the Acceptance Form).
  • Where a place is not immediately available, registered applicants will be placed on a waiting list in order of registration and we will keep in touch with our waiting families.
  • As part of our settling in process, in the term prior to joining the main Nursery, you will be sent online familiarisation information and stories to share with your child and you will also be invited to our Pre-Nursery afternoon sessions on a Tuesday and Thursday.

The Admissions Process

  • Pupils who are already attending our Nursery progress through the School and are automatically given a place in one of our Reception Classes.
  • Entry from external applicants is in order of registration with priority given to siblings of pupils already enrolled in the school. A small number of places may be available and we welcome interest for a Reception place from external families.
  • Upon receipt of a completed Registration Form and a non-refundable fee of £75 we will put your child on the waiting list for a place in Reception.
  • When a place becomes available we will send out an Acceptance Form which should be completed and returned, along with a £750 deposit, within 2 weeks in order to secure the place. Please note that the deposit will be refunded against the final term’s invoice when your child leaves at the end of Year 2, or sooner (subject to the terms and conditions on the Acceptance Form).
  • On receipt of the Acceptance Form and deposit you will be sent a full parent pack. In the Summer term, prior to joining in September, your child will be invited to a settling in morning to meet their class teacher and their new classmates.

Occasionally a small number of places may become available in Year 1 and Year 2, depending on the relocation of our current families.

Do contact the school office to enquire about availability.
