The main point of entry to Arnold House is at 3+ into Pre-Reception; boys should have had their 3rd birthday by 1st September in the year of entry.

The school admits approximately 40 boys into two parallel classes each September.  Due to the current high rate of applications, parents are required to register their son prior to their second birthday.

Step 1: Through the link below create your registration account. Once you have created an account, use the portal to book a tour of our Pre-Prep site in Marlborough Place. Dates will be available throughout the year.

Step 2: Complete the full registration form and pay the registration fee of £150. Once this is complete, you will be invited to book a place at one of our Summer Term open days at the Prep-School site in Loudoun Road.

Step 3: In the Autumn Term before entry, you will be invited to return to the online portal to book your parent appointment with the Headmaster and a small group tour at the Pre-Prep with other parents applying for the same point of entry.

Step 4: All boys whose parents have completed all the above steps will be invited to a ‘playdate’ accompanied by one parent. This will take place in small groups of boys within the same age range.

Offers will be made around the February half term of the year of entry.

Occasionally, places may arise further up the school and boys will be assessed for these places throughout the year on an individual basis. If you wish to discuss possible entry into Year 3, Year 5 or Year 7, (and have not previously registered) please contact the Registrar, who can advise on availability.
