We are delighted that you are considering Knighton House for your daughter and / or son.
Boys and girls can begin their time at Knighton when they are 3 years old joining our pre-prep, The Orchard, moving to the prep school in Year 3 when they are 7 years old and stay until they are 13 in Year 8.
Knighton House has recently made the decision to move progressively towards co-education. Consequently, for the first time we are now accepting boys up to and including Year Six as day pupils. This will be extended to include Years 7 and 8 with effect from September 2021. Work is now proceeding on a planned refurbishment of the school’s boarding accommodation in preparation for the move to a full co-education environment in 2022.
Our main entry points are:
- Nursery (age 3+ for boys and girls)
- Reception (age 4+ for boys and girls)
- Year 3 (age 7+ for boys and girls)
- Year 7 (age 11+ for girls only, boys from September 2021)
Children may join at any point during the academic year when there are places available.
Although Knighton House is a non-selective school, we will seek a confidential reference from your child’s current school and invite them to take part in some form of assessment before they arrive so are informed of their strengths and weaknesses. The type of assessment varies depending on entry point.
The Admissions team are here to guide and help you with any questions you may have.

What People Say
It’s a place where my daughter can enjoy her childhood without sacrificing a 1st class education and where she can get a 1st class education without sacrificing her childhood.
If you are an overseas student, I would recommend Knighton House because you have lots of fun here and the people are so nice.
Simply I think Knighton quietly does things well, very well. Don’t underestimate it.
