Fairstead House


An independent day school and nursery for boys and girls
from three months to eleven years

Admissions

The best way to decide whether or not we are the right school or nursery for you and your child is by visiting us. Prospective parents and their children can see the school in action on our official Open Mornings, which are held in the autumn, spring and summer terms. However, every day is an ‘open day’, so if you would prefer to visit us at another time, please contact the school office to arrange something more convenient.

Once you have decided that we are the right school for your child the next step is to complete and return the registration form and fee.

Children will be accepted into the nursery on a “first come first served basis” in order of date of registration and priority will be given to siblings.

We welcome applications from older children into Reception and above where places are available. The children will be invited to attend an informal entry assessment and further details are available from the school office. Scholarships are available in a wide range of subjects such as academia, music, drama or sport from Year 5 onwards.

Children enjoy learning with their friends at Fairstead House School
