Pre Prep Admissions

Pre School Admissions (Formerly Nursery and Transition)

In the Pre School we have two classes (32 places) available and this is one of the key points of entry to the School. From September 2020, children can join our Pre School in the term they turn 3 years old. However, from September 2021 we will only accept children after their third birthday. 

From here, they progress to our Reception Class (two classes with an intake of 16 in each class.) Throughout their time in the Pre School and Prep school, we embed our values of Excellence, Respect, Courage and Perseverance to ensure all our children reach their full potential by Year 6. We ensure all doors of opportunity are available for all our pupils, with many children choosing to stay and move up through to the Senior School at Year 7. We are proud to be one of the few schools in the area to offer a seamless transition to the Senior School.

Admissions during the Coronavirus disruption

Taster days will continue for all children considering joining Radnor House in September 2020.  Your child is able to join their year group in a virtual taster day on line and experience the outstanding teaching and learning from the comfort of their own home.  Admissions test papers will be sent to parents to be overseen at home and the Head and form tutor are available for online conversations. If you would like to arrange a taster day please contact our registrar Wendy Owens at

The Admissions Process
The best way to experience the magic of the Pre School is to come and see for yourself on one of our weekly tours or our Open Day.

During your visit, our Head of Pre Prep and Head will show you around the superb facilities and discuss your individual requirements.

If you would like to register your child, please complete the online Registration Form and pay £100 registration fee. Your child will be invited for a personalised taster session in the term before they are due to join, with places formally offered shortly after this. A £1500 deposit will be required to accept a place and this will be refunded when your child leaves the school.

Reception Entry

There are 32 places available for boys and girls in Reception each year (two classes of 16.) Children in our Pre School (formerly nursery and Transition) have a guarantee of transfer to Reception. Additional spaces are offered to external candidates following a taster day in the January before they are due to start School in the September.

If you wish to register for entry in September 2020, please complete the online Registration Form.

Entry into Year 1 and Year 2

Places occasionally become available in Year 1 and Year 2, 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
