Reception class is the key point of entry to the Prep school, however we also welcome applications for other year groups, subject to occasional availability of places.

We are very proud of our Prep School and would love to introduce you to our wonderful pupils and show off our first class facilities and grounds. We run weekly tours and bi-annual Open Days. Details and booking for these can be found here.

Reception Entry

There are 20 places available for boys and girls in Reception each year. The majority of these are typically taken by children moving up from our Nursery. Any additional spaces will be offered to external candidates following a taster day in the February before they are due to start School.

Entry into other years in the Prep School

Places occasionally become available in other years of the Prep school, and we welcome applications for these throughout the year. Please contact our Registrar, Wendy Owens, to enquire about current availability on 01959 563720 or email at

Application Process: Years 1-3

Parents of pupils wishing to join in Years 1-3 will be asked to register and pay a £100 registration fee. We will then arrange for a 'taster'; a chance for your child to experience a typical day in the Prep. There is no formal assessment for these year groups, rather pupils are observed informally across the day to ensure they will be able to keep up with the pace of our curriculum.

Application Process: Years 4-6

The application process for the Upper Prep years is as detailed above. In addition to the informal observations, there will also be brief Maths and English tests carried out during the day.

Subject to a satisfactory taster day, test results and references places will be offered within 48 hours. 

The Radnor House Sevenoaks Guarantee

We are proud to be one of the few schools in the area to offer guaranteed places; once your child becomes part of the Radnor family, their place in the school is secure through to the end of Sixth Form, without re-assessment.

We endeavour to make the application process as easy as possible. If you wish to register your child, please complete and submit the form in the downloads box opposite. Alternatively, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact our Registrar, Wendy Owens on 01959 563720 or email at
