Reception Entry

Our main point of entry is Reception for girls aged 4+.

We are proud to be non-selective at Reception and places are offered on the basis of a ballot, which usually takes place in the May, 18 months prior to the September of entry.

September 2021 entry

The ballot for Reception 2021 took place in May 2020, but it is still possible to register for our waiting list as places may become available.

September 2022 entry

We have adjusted our admissions process for Reception 2022 entry, in order to offer our prospective families a bit of certainty in these uncertain times.

We are pleased to guarantee an offer of a place to any family that registers by the original ballot deadline, which is the 30th April 2021

Families to whom we make an offer of a place in May can secure their place by paying a deposit. Or, if they wish, they can ask that their registration be entered into the ballot, which will now be held in early December 2021.

Registrations for the ballot will therefore remain open until the 30th November 2021.

We hope that this will reassure those families who have long committed to The Study, as well as allowing others who have not yet had the opportunity to visit us to do so once guidance allows.


To register, you will need to complete and return a registration form, along with a copy of your daughter’s birth certificate, and arrange to pay £100 registration fee by bank transfer.  Please see below for a copy of the form and our bank details.

We welcome registrations any time up until the end of April of the ballot year.  Anyone registering after the ballot has taken place will be added to a waiting list.

Sibling Places 

Sisters of current pupils are guaranteed a place, but we ask for a separate registration form for each child.

Fee Assisted Places

We offer means tested bursaries for children at 7+.  For further information on our Bursary provision, please contact our Bursar, Mr Philip Walker
