Admissions Procedure

Please note the changes to our Admissions Policy for pupils registering for September 2023 onward (so babies born from 1st September 2018). For these children, registration will no longer open at birth, but rather on 1st September three years before entry, when children are aged between one and two years old.  An explanation of this procedure is available on the Admissions tab of this website.  Please contact the Registrar for further details.

What is the entry procedure?

We operate a selective entry procedure and give priority to siblings of current pupils. Our entrance assessments seek to ensure that the pupils selected will enjoy and benefit from the broad curriculum on offer.

Unfortunately there is no automatic entry from Thomas’s Kindergarten to Reception at Thomas’s Clapham. If you wish to register your child at Thomas's Kindergarten as well as the main school please contact the Kindergarten directly. More information about the Kindergarten may be found here.

How do I register my child?
