Most EHS girls join us at 4 years old, in our Reception. This is part of Westbourne, our Pre-Prep Department.
We’re now accepting registrations for September 2023 and September 2024 entry to our Reception. Once you’ve registered, we’ll invite you and your daughter to a pre-admission visit, at a time to suit you. This gives you the chance to see whether EHS feels right for your child, and we can get an idea of how happy she’ll be here.
When we’ve received your registration, we’ll contact you to arrange a suitable date for the pre-admission visit. You might also hear us call this an assessment, but we won’t be testing your child’s academic abilities – we just want to know she’s enthusiastic about learning.
Our Westbourne and Prep Parents Guide offers more in-depth information about our processes:
You’re also very welcome to visit us before you register, at an Open Day or arranged bespoke visit.
You can talk to our Admissions Team about anything to do with your application. Call 0121 454 5831 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Joining Nursery or Kindergarten
Some girls join Westbourne before Reception, in our Nursery or Kindergarten.
We accept girls from the age of 2½, once they are physically, emotionally and socially ready for our learning environment, away from home. Also, we need to know they will enjoy taking part in the lessons and activities.
If you’d like to apply for your daughter to join at this stage, you’ll need to register, as explained below. We’ll then invite you and your daughter to an informal pre-admission visit, which takes up to an hour. During this time your child will spend time with our Senior Teacher and visit her prospective year group whilst you will have time to have your questions answered. If everyone’s happy, we’ll discuss an appropriate starting date with you.
Please note – if you’re considering EHS for your daughter, it’s a good idea to talk to us as soon as possible, as we have a waiting list for places. We accept early registrations for our Nursery from birth. If you have any questions, you can call our Admissions Team on 0121 454 5831 or email email@example.com.
If you apply for a Reception start we’ll invite you and your daughter to a pre-admission session. This is an opportunity for us to look at her academic potential, and for her to meet current pupils and get a feel for what life’s like here. Parents are also able to have their questions answered and find out more about the day-to-day procedures.
If you’d like to apply for your daughter to join at this stage, before the assessment you’ll need to complete a registration form. If you’d like to talk to us first, please call our Admissions Team on 0121 454 5831 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Joining Years 1-6
Your child could join us in our Preparatory School, including Westbourne, in any year group, subject to the availability of places.
If you’d like to apply for your daughter to join at any stage, before the assessment you’ll need to complete a registration form. If you’d like to talk to us first, please call our Admissions Team on 0121 454 5831 or email email@example.com
