Girls’ Prep Entry Process

RECEPTION ENTRY (2024-2025)

  • We occasionally have spaces that become available throughout the year. To enquire about availability, please contact the Admissions team at admissions@surbitonhigh.com or on 020 8439 1338.
  • Once registered, your daughter will be invited to attend a small group ‘Stay and Play’ session in School. This session will allow her to explore our fun and exciting learning environment, meet our inspiring staff, get to know other prospective pupils, and allow us to observe your daughter in our Early Years setting.

ENTRY INTO OTHER YEAR GROUPS – OCCASIONAL PLACES

  • Owing to a small number of families relocating, we occasionally have spaces that become available in other year groups. Please contact the Admissions Department to ascertain the availability in the relevant year group before applying – admissions@surbitonhigh.com. Candidates applying outside of standard entry points are required to sit an age-appropriate assessment.
