Admissions

Welcome to the Admissions section of our website.

Ardingly College Pre-Prep School makes a perfect start to a child’s education, where we provide for both academic and personal development within a caring school community.

Choosing a school is one of the most important decisions you will make; you will have plenty of questions you wish to ask and we are here to help.

An Open Morning provides an excellent opportunity to see the school in its entirety, meet the Headmaster and his team, as well as the children who will take pleasure in showing you around their school. Following your visit to an Open Morning, you may also wish to have a personal visit.

Entry into the Pre-Prep School is subject to a meeting with the Head and, where appropriate, a copy of the most recent report and a reference from your child’s current school.

Once registered, children are invited to attend a ‘taster day’ when an informal assessment will also take place. A formal offer of a place will be made subject to the taster day.  A deposit is required on acceptance of the place.

Our registry team are always happy to answer any questions you may have and arrange for you to visit. They can be contacted on 01444 893320. To register for an Open Morning please click here.

I am delighted to introduce Suzanne O’Shea, the Registrar of Ardingly College, who will guide you through this process with her team.
