Entry Process



[March 2020 Update] The school is now closed to the majority of pupils and so our admissions process has temporarily changed, but not stopped! As we aren’t currently able to invite potential families in for a tour or potential pupils in for taster days, we will ask instead for school reports and references, after which we are able to offer places. Visits and taster days can then be scheduled at a later date to help children with the vital process of settling in, prior to their start with us.

Entry Points

The majority of children join Reigate St Mary’s in the Early Years  but we are very happy to welcome children in to other year groups should spaces arise. Due to demand we are delighted to be adding an additional Year 3 class for September 2020 and are now welcoming applications for spaces in this year group.

Entry into Year 3 – September 2020

The first step is to register for a place and pay the registration fee of £100.

Places will be offered subject to the amended process as outlined above. On acceptance, a deposit of £400 is payable.

Families will be invited to our Meet the Teacher events in June which provide an excellent opportunity for children to meet their new classmates and parents to find out more about the next academic year alongside current families.

Entry into Early Years – Green Shoots and Reception 

Children enter Green Shoots from 2 1/2 years old or Reception in the September before their 5th birthday (if there are spaces in Kindergarten, children join in the September before their 4th birthday).

As families are not able to visit at the moment, if you are interested in a place for September 2020 the first step is to register with us and pay the registration fee of £100. We can then allocate a space and arrange a tour once the school reopens.

Green Shoots Entry
In usual circumstances, parents and children are invited to Little Shoots sessions in advance of joining Green Shoots and these are an excellent way to familiarise everyone with the Green Shoots environment and staff. They are also a great way to meet other parents. A year before joining, a deposit of £400 is payable.

Reception Entry
In usual circumstances, children are invited to come and spend a day with us. On acceptance of a place, a deposit of £400 is payable (plus an additional deposit a year before joining Reception of £1000 which is refundable from the first term’s Reception fee bill). Families are invited to our Meet the Teacher events and the children join us for a Reception Tea Party in the summer before they join.
