Join us for a 'taster experience'

Attending a ‘Taster’ session is an integral way for your child to experience our vibrant and nurturing community. We hope that this experience will make the decision to choose Ripley Court School an easier one. 

  • Prep and Pre-prep children are encouraged to stay for the entire day to fully immerse themselves in our school life, meet their peers, and discover all that Ripley Court offers. We will gently assess each child’s needs to ensure they can thrive at Ripley Court. Activities may include reading, writing, spelling, and maths, but there’s no need for children to prepare.  
  • Reception children are invited to join us for a morning and can be collected after lunch at 1 pm. 
  •  Nursery children and their parents are  invited to a 'stay-and-play' hour, offering a playful glimpse into the Nursery.


The offer of a place will remain open for one month. To accept the offer, we kindly ask you to sign the Acceptance Contract and return it to the Head of Admissions, along with the refundable Acceptance Deposit of £500. We accept applications to Ripley Court School throughout the year, and we will ensure that your child feels supported, secure and settled from the first day.

“The best thing we ever did as parents was to send our son to Ripley Court School. Keep doing what you do so well! Thank you for bringing out the best in him.”
