4+ Registration

Pre-Prep (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2)

For children starting Reception in September having had their fourth birthday on or before 31st August. We do have occasional vacancies in Years 1 and 2

Registration process

Typically, parents will visit the school either during an Open Morning or a Show Round. The next procedure is to fill in an Application for Admission form and submit it to the school with the £150 registration fee. This can be done via the Admissions section of the school website. All children entering Reception at Rosemead are invited for an informal 4+ observational play session and the Admissions Registrar will make arrangements for this.

Occasional places on offer for Year 1 and 2 entry. Informal class-based assessment is available.

Dates and timing of session

This year our 4+ observational play sessions will take place on several dates during November 2023 and during January 2024. Please note that we also, typically, arrange additional 4+ session dates later in the Spring and Summer Terms, depending on place availability.

Year 1 and 2 assessment dates will be arranged when necessary at mutually convenient times.


What do the children need to bring?

If your child has any specific medication, please bring this with you on the day. Children will need their coats for outdoor play.

What will happen during the sessions?

Upon arrival at 9.30am, you will be greeted by the Head of Pre-Prep, who will take you and your child through to the Nursery as this is your child’s current age group. Your child will be able to access the exciting learning opportunities on offer to our current Nursery children. Staff will play and interact with your child and observe them playing with or alongside others. Outside play will be a part of the morning, as well as a fruit snack and story time. The morning will finish at 10.30am. We do ask parents to leave their child as soon as they are settled and to return at the end of the play session.

Years 1 and 2
Year 1 and 2 will follow the same as above in a more formal process in either a Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 class depending on age.
