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

All children are invited for a "taster" morning before joining, and will also have to satisfy the headmaster, through such assessment or reports as he may deem necessary at that time, that their demeanour and the standard of their work fits the Ripley Court pattern. The older the child the more formal the entry assessment.
