Admissions Procedure


Children may enter the Nursery after they have turned two years old. Places may be available at other times. Children may enter the Reception class when they are four. Nursery and Reception places are offered a year before a child’s entry.

Children already attending Hurlingham Nursery  are offered priority places in the Pre-Preparatory school and the school operates a sibling policy; otherwise places are allocated on a first come first served basis.

When you accept a place at Hurlingham Nursery and Pre-Prep you will be required to pay a deposit.

For Nursery, we require a deposit of £2000.

For children joining Pre-Prep, we require a  deposit of £3000 paid in 2 instalments. An acceptance fee of £2000 on acceptance of place in September then balance payment of £1000 in mid January. For any children transferring from nursery to Pre-Prep we require a top-up of £1000 on acceptance of place.

This is not refundable if for any reason your child does not take up the place offered.

When your child joins the school you will be required to pay the balance of the fees for the first year at the current rate, along with a deposit.



Your deposit is refunded when your child leaves, provided a full term’s notice is given in writing. Otherwise you will be charged a full term’s fees, in lieu of notice. Please refer to the Terms and Conditions under Policies.
