Admissions journey

COVID safety measures with entrance procedures

We are reviewing all our entrance procedures, open events and taster days to reduce any risk of infection around the schools. We are adhering to the latest safety measures and government guidelines to minimise contact between pupils and staff and restricting the number of visitors to our sites. We will make further announcements as soon as we can.

Admissions journey

Attending school should be an exciting and fun experience for all girls and boys. At Monmouth Prep School, we strive to ensure that every child goes home with a smile. We are dedicated to encouraging academic brilliance and personal strengths in every pupil as we support them through these vital years.

Please do read our Admissions Booklet for further information about our family of schools.

Nursery

After their third birthday, children are welcome to join the Nursery at Monmouth Prep School. The transition from home to Nursery can be a big step for children, so we ensure that they feel happy and comfortable with us from day one. We are delighted to offer parents the flexibility of morning, afternoon or all-day sessions for their child, with a minimum of four half-day sessions per week.

Prospective families are invited to visit the school for a bespoke tour or open event. Parents are also welcome to register their child. There are no assessments or formal interviews for children applying for Nursery, though, during their Admissions journey, Monmouth Prep School’s Head, Mr Neil Shaw, would be delighted to meet every child personally to learn more about them. Families may then be made an offer of a place.

We would expect current Nursery pupils to naturally and happily transition to Reception once they reach the right age.

Reception to Year 2

Prospective families are invited to visit the school for a bespoke tour or open event. Parents are also welcome to register their child. There are no assessments or formal interviews for children applying for Reception-Year 2, though, during their Admissions journey, Monmouth Prep School’s Head, Mr Neil Shaw, would be delighted to meet every child personally to learn more about them. Families may then be made an offer of a place.

All current Year 2 pupils naturally and comfortably transition into Year 3 in September. There is no longer a requirement for current Year 2 pupils to undergo assessments for Year 3 entry.

Year 3 to Year 6

For admission into Years 3-6, all children will have an interview-style chat with the Head of Monmouth Prep School, Mr Neil Shaw. We may also ask to see a sample of a child’s work. Not only does this help us determine a child’s academic potential, but it is also an opportunity for your child’s individualism and personality to shine.

The boys and girls will also take a short age appropriate test in Maths and English which will be taken under the care of a member of the teaching staff. These entrance assessments are usually held in March, though they can be arranged at other times during the school year. Offers will be made in writing within two weeks of the assessments.

Wherever possible, girls and boys will be able to attend a taster day, if they wish. This is a fantastic opportunity for our candidates to experience a day in the life of a Monmouth Prep School pupil.
