Admissions Process



Our Admissions Process

The majority of children join Reigate St Mary’s into Green Shoots, Kindergarten or Reception, but we are pleased to welcome children into other year groups when spaces arise.

Please do contact Admissions Officer; Jenny Myddleton for further information on 01737 244880 or

  • Enquiry

Please contact Jenny Myddleton (as above) or complete a brief online enquiry form in our Admissions portal OpenApply, so that we have your family’s essential details and requirements saved and can advise on availability of spaces in your year group/s.

  • Visit Us

You are warmly invited to one or more of our Open Morning events in the Spring Term, or to have a private tour on a date to suit you. We also run regular Stay & Play sessions (Little Shoots and Stepping Stones) for prospective Green Shoots, Kindergarten and Reception children. Please contact Jenny Myddleton for dates, information and to register.

  • Registration

The first official step in the Admissions process is Registration (via the Admissions portal), which may mean joining the waiting list if the year group is currently full. Once registered, if we have a space, we will invite your child/children in for a Taster Day (Year 1 and above), a shorter Taster Session (Reception, Kindergarten) or a Stay & Play session (Green Shoots).

  • Confirmation

Subject to availability and after a Taster Visit or Stay & Play session, we then make a formal offer of place and request the deposit accordingly. After an offer has been made and accepted, we will keep in regular contact and invite you to transition events as appropriate.

Entry into Nursery – Green Shoots & Kindergarten 

Children enter Green Shoots from 2 1/2 years old (Sept/Jan intake, according to age) or Kindergarten from 3 years, for the pre-school year.

Entry into Reception 2022

We currently have spaces for families to join us into Reception in September 2022. Please ensure that your child is registered in our Admissions portal and that you have arranged to visit us.

Entry into Upper School

If you are considering us for entry into the Upper School (Years 3-6), we will invite your son or daughter in for a slightly more formal assessment of his/her current position and learning potential.
