Barfield School

An Independent Preparatory School for Girls and Boys

Admissions

Choosing the right school for your child is a big decision for any parent. We are delighted that you have chosen to consider Barfield School.

Entry can be at any time during the academic year. It is subject to a preliminary assessment visit for your child at the appropriate age level as well as a space being available for them in their year group.

Barfield is an inclusive school that welcomes children from all backgrounds and abilities. All applications will be treated on merit and in a sensitive manner.

In the Nursery, children start in the half term after their 2nd birthday following their 2 year developmental check and attend a minimum of three of the ten available sessions. They can build these up to full time as they gain confidence.

The normal procedure is for parents to attend an Open Morning or arrange to visit the school and meet the Headmaster during term time when the school is in action. This is followed by the completion of the registration form which should be sent to the School with the registration fee.

All children are invited for a "taster" session before joining in order for them to be assessed. Reports are also requested from a child’s current school if appropriate. Following the assessment, places will be offered to prospective parents and a confirmation fee will be requested to confirm a child’s place.

Full details of our Admissions Policy can be found on this page.
