Here at Holy Cross Prep, we aim to make our admissions process as straightforward and stress-free as possible for prospective parents. We understand how vital it is to find the right educational environment for your daughter. Whether you are at the very start of your journey, or you are ready to make that all-important decision, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Our pupils come from a wide range of local nurseries. Most begin their education in September, following their fourth birthday. However, we also offer occasional ‘through school’ places on request. We welcome all faiths and cultures, although priority is given to Catholic families and siblings of current pupils.

Once registered, all children are placed on a waiting list. Introductory morning sessions take place during November, prior to the autumn term when pupils are due to start school. This hour-long introductory session provides an opportunity for your daughter to meet and spend time with her teacher, whilst ensuring that Holy Cross Prep can provide a suitable academic and social environment. Our aim is to recognise and cater for pupils’ individual learning styles, enabling them to progress happily and productively through school.

We are always happy to answer any questions you may have. If you would like further guidance about the admissions process, please contact our Registrar, Mrs Wendy Wilman:

Admission Fees:

  • Registration Fee – at the registration stage, we require a non-refundable deposit of £95 (on return of a completed Registration Form).
  • Acceptance Deposit – at the acceptance stage, we require a deposit of £1,000 (following the offer of a place and on return of a completed Acceptance Form).
