Admissions FAQs

What are your main points of entry?

Normal entry ages are:

The Nursery (Children join the Nursery in the term of their third birthday).
Reception (Age 4+) and

In the nursery, children often start on a part-time basis, attending a minimum of three of the ten available sessions. They can build these up to full time as they gain confidence.

Providing a space is available, we accept applications to Ripley Court School throughout the year.

Taster mornings are tailored to the age of the child, and may involve some reading, writing, spelling, and maths.
