4+ Entry

Before the registration process begins we warmly invite parents to come and visit the School either through the Autumn Saturday Open Day, the Spring Friday Open Morning or the more regular Wednesday “School in Action” mornings. These take place most Wednesday mornings (09:30-11:00) and the Headmaster leads these tours. The tour ends with refreshments and a question and answer session.

Admission to Orley Farm School at 4+

Admission to Orley Farm School is by assessment.  Our principal point of entry is 4+ into Reception.  Registration for this must have taken place by the preceding 7th November (e.g. those applying for a place in the school in September 2024 must be registered by 7th November 2023). Our assessments will be held on Monday 8th January, Tuesday 9th January and Wednesday 10th January 2024.  Offers will be sent out on Friday 19th January 2024.

Assessment for Reception Year involves all Pre-Prep staff and children are seen in groups of about ten, the youngest being seen earliest in the day.  Each child is seen in a group setting and individually.  A range of assessments are undertaken in order to give a comprehensive profile of attainment and aptitude.  This is supplemented by a report from the Nursery School.  During this assessment time we aim to maintain a warm and relaxed atmosphere so that the children (and their parents!) need not feel anxious.

We offer to 75+ pupils and a small reserve list is maintained. During the following Summer Term a series of events are organised to allow parents and children to build their links with the School.

We very much hope you will decide to come and visit us where you will be given a very warm welcome and plenty of smiles from our children, who are very proud of their school and are keen to show you why Orley Farm is such a wonderful place to begin the life long journey of learning.

Orley Farm School is where teaching is inspired and magic is created.  Please call Mrs. Anita Patel to find out more.
