How to Apply for The Junior School

Joining St Margaret's Junior School

Building on the foundations established in the early years, our Junior School pupils are stretched and supported by a broad and diverse curriculum.

Alongside our Nursery and Reception entry point, we welcome families looking for 7+ entry or an occasional space for year groups outside of The Nursery, Reception and Year 3. Please do be in touch, we will be happy to advise on availability and waiting lists where appropriate.

Visit Us

We are looking forward to meeting you

If you are interested in entry at 7+ or an alternative year group and have not visited the School, we would recommend in the first instance that you contact us to check availability and then book a 1-1 tour with the Head of Junior School.

Registration

Complete and submit a registration form and fee

The registration form provides us with key information about your child, their current school and the proposed date of entry.

Registrations for 7+/Year 3 September 2022 entry close on 22 November 2021.

Whilst there is no registration deadline for occasional places, please do get in touch and our Admissions Team will confirm availability of places.

Assessment

Attend an assessment day and taster session

The Assessment and Taster Day for September 2022 entry for 7+/Year 3 and for occasional spaces within other year groups (outside of The Nursery and Reception) will be 26 November 2021.

We will also, at this stage, contact your child’s current school to request a confidential reference report and school report.

Offers and Acceptance

How to secure your Junior School place

Offers are sent out within 2 weeks of the assessment meeting and due to the high demand of places need to be formally accepted within 2 weeks of receipt. A non-refundable deposit of £1000 is required to secure your child’s place, £500 of which is credited against the first term’s fees and the remainder is returned at the end of the child’s final term.

Preparing for School

Welcome to St Margaret's Junior School

Before your child starts at School you will receive our Joining Information Pack which requests detailed information regarding your child’s medical history, dietary needs and emergency contacts. For those children joining in September, during the summer term they will be invited to attend in-school activities designed to smooth the transition to St Margaret’s.
