Main School Admissions

Entry is by assessment and most girls join the Falkner House Reception class in the September following their fourth birthday. From time to time vacancies occur throughout the school and we always welcome enquiries from parents who would like their daughter to be considered for an ‘occasional’ place.


During the year before entry, girls (including girls in the Falkner House Nursery) are called for an assessment. The staff work hard to make sure that this experience is both friendly and personal. We are looking for potential rather than attainment and we balance a wide range of factors before offering places. Our key objective is that your daughter should be successful and happy at Falkner House.


Places are offered as quickly as possible after the assessment process. We try to keep to a time scale in accordance with other preparatory schools to make it easier for parents to reach their final decision.


As part of our family ethos we support a sibling policy. However we do not always guarantee a sibling place and if we believe a sister will flourish more in another environment, we discuss the matter with parents.  We strongly recommend that parents with ‘younger sisters’ also register at a variety of schools as well as Falkner House.
