Joining Preparatory School

Each girl wishing to join the Preparatory Department is invited in to School for an age-appropriate assessment day during which her academic ability and potential are tested. This process also offers the opportunity for girls to meet current pupils and gain a view of what life will be like once she joins us. We are able to accept new pupils into each year group, subject to availability of places.

We have also recently announced a limited number of new Bursaries available to girls moving up to or joining Reception or Year 3. For further information click on the link below.


Completion of the Registration Form is taken as a clear parental statement of interest in the school. A Registration Fee of £75 is payable at this stage to cover administration fees and is non-refundable. Please make your cheque payable to 'Edgbaston High School'. Alternatively, you may speak to the Finance Assistant in the Bursary Office on 0121 454 5831 to make a payment by debit or credit card.

Early registration is recommended in the event of there being a waiting list for places at the school.

Once the Registration Form has been received by school you will be contacted and a suitable date will be organised for your daughter to join us for her assessment.
