Year 3 is the main entry point for the Prep, when up to 30 external applicants join pupils progressing from the Pelican Nursery and Pre-Prep.
Places are generally only available in Years 4 and 6 if current pupils give notice to leave during the course of the academic year. There are usually around three spaces available in Year 5. We hold entrance testing for these year groups in the January prior to entry.
We offer means-tested financial assistance with fees to those families who could not otherwise afford a Perse education. The level of assistance may vary in value from 5% to 100% of annual fees, and is dependent on the financial circumstances of the parents.
Below is an overview of the process with links to more information. We encourage you to take full advantage of tours, taster sessions and open days to find out as much as you can about whether the Prep is right for you.
