Joining the Pre-Prep (Reception – Year 2)

If you would like to consider a place at the Maynard Pre-Prep for your daughter, the first thing to do is to come and visit us. We would be delighted to give you a tour of the school and the opportunity to meet Emma Cook, the Head of the Pre-Prep Department.

If you think your daughter would enjoy our caring learning environment, the next stage would be to book in for a Taster Session where she can get to know her own peer group and experience the Maynard’s happy way of life!

During a Taster Session we will make sure your daughter is suited to the School. After all, we want her to enjoy her time here with us!

We will consider:

  • How she interacts with adults and peers
  • Any specific behavioural or individual needs
  • Reading
  • Drawing
  • Practical handling activities

Following your daughter’s morning at the School, we would then formally offer a place and the return of the Acceptance Form completes the entry procedure. You may, of course, enter your child for future years but we would not normally complete the paperwork until the year preceding admission.

Depending on place availability, children may enter at any time throughout the academic year.

You can formally apply for a place by returning the completed Registration Form which can be downloaded here and is also enclosed with the prospectus.
