Prep School

The Prep School is where the foundations of our children’s learning are laid, where they enjoy an inspiring and nurturing experience that sets them on a rewarding and happy journey in education.

Pre-Prep – Reception to Year 2
Parents wishing to apply for their child or children to join our Pre-Prep are invited to enjoy a personal tour of the School and to meet the Headmistress Mrs Laura Turner.
Children may be able to join the Pre-Prep at any time during the school year, however, owing to demand for places especially for September enrolment, parents are advised to register their interest as soon as possible by contacting Mrs Jo Barkes, Registrar, Tel: +44 (0)1833 696 030 or email: admissions@barneyschool.org.uk

Prep School – Years 3 to 6
Children wishing to join the Prep School in Years 3 to 6 are asked to undergo a short series of tests in English, mathematics and non-verbal reasoning skills.
Entrance Day is usually held on the first Saturday in February for entry in the following September. Applications for Prep School must be registered prior to Entrance Day.
There may be opportunities for pupils to join the school at other times during the academic year and we welcome registration all year round. Appropriate competence is required but, above all, we look for the potential to do well.

Registration Form must be completed and returned to the School for both Pre-Prep and Prep.
