Admissions Procedure

Entry to Hereward House

Thank you for considering Hereward House for your son’s education. We understand that choosing a school is one of the most important decisions that you will ever make.

4+ Entry

The main point of entry for the school is in to the Transition (Reception) year. The Transition class starts in the September following a boy’s fourth birthday. Due to the volume of applications it is advisable to register before your son is 18 months old.

Registered parents will be invited to visit during the calendar year preceding their son's prospective year of entry (i.e. a family registered for 2026 entry will be invited to visit during the calendar year 2025). During the visit parents will get a tour of the school alongside a meeting with the Headmaster, which will hopefully give a good overview of our school; both the physical space and our educational values and philosophy.

Places are offered out in the January prior to the September that your son is due to start at the school and offers are made on the understanding that your son is expected to stay until 13.

Regrettably we are fully subscribed for entry in 2024, but are accepting applications for 2025, 2026, 2027 and 2028. Families wishing to register for 2025 should do so before the end of November 2023.

Occasional Places

Occasional places arise from time to time. If you are looking for admission into Year 1 or above please contact the School Office for availability. If a potential space exists you will be invited in for a tour of the school and an interview with the Headmaster. Your son may also be required to complete an assessment as well as participate in a ‘taster day’ at the school.
