We are delighted that you are considering Knighton House for your daughter and / or son (pre-prep only).
Boys and girls can begin their time at Knighton when they are 3 years old joining our pre-prep, The Orchard. Girls move to the prep school in Year 3 when they are 7 years old and stay until they are 13 in Year 8. Boys can stay in the pre prep until the end of Year 2 when they move to other local schools.
Our main entry points are:
- Nursery (age 3+ for boys and girls)
- Reception (age 4+ for boys and girls)
- Year 3 (age 7+ for girls only)
- Year 7 (age 11+ for girls only)
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.
