Classes Application Process

We accept applications at any time (from birth upwards) and operate an ‘all year’ admissions policy, admitting children throughout the year.

We have combined classes across two year groups. See more information on Class ages.

The application process is as follows:

  1. Book a Visit here you can find out more about Steiner Education, tour the School and see the Classes in action.
  2. Complete and return the Application Form (see box on the right). There is no fee to do so, and no obligation to take your application further.
  3. We invite you for a Parent/Teacher Meeting where you meet the Class Teacher and talk about your child.
  4. We ask each child to spend a Taster Week at the School in the relevant class before any decision is made. This provides the wider teaching team with an opportunity to meet the child. After your child’s visit you may be invited to a further meeting with the teacher.
  5. The teachers will make a decision on admission, and we will contact you about this. If successful you will receive an Offer of a Place. You then fill in an Acceptance Form and pay a deposit of £300 to secure your place. The deposit is returnable when the child leaves the School as long as a full term’s notice has been given in writing.
  6. We’ll arrange a Parent Interview where you have the opportunity to discuss the admission of your child with a teacher, and agree a start date and settling in process. It also helps us build a comprehensive picture of your child and their development. A non-refundable administration fee of £60 is required at this stage to facilitate the registration process. If the child you are applying for is already in our Kindergarten, you are not required to pay this administration fee.
