Prep Admissions

Radnor House Prep School has an intake of 20 (one class) in Reception and a further intake of 20 (two classes) at Year 4.  All Prep School pupils automatically feed into the Senior School at Year 7. We are a family school and siblings always have priority on entry.

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 would be delighted to meet you at one of our weekly tours or our annual Open Day.

Reception Entry

There are 20 places available for boys and girls in Reception each year. Children in our Nursery 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.

Our next Open Morning for Reception will take place on Tuesday 21st January 2020 at 9am. This will be an opportunity for us to answer any questions you may have. If you would like to attend this Open Morning, please register here.

The deadline to register for Reception class entry in September 2020 is 24 January 2020.

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

Year 4 Entry

There are 20 additional places available for boys and girls in Year 4 each year. If you wish to register for entry into Year 4 please contact our Registrar, Wendy Owens, to enquire about coming in for a tour and arranging a taster day on 01959 563720 or email at

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 a taster day; 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 endeavor to make the application process as easy as possible. If you wish to register your child, please complete the online Registration Form. Alternatively, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact our Registrar, Wendy Owens on 01959 567166 or email at
