Joining The Mall

We are delighted that you are considering The Mall School for your son. We are a small friendly school and we welcome prospective families to visit us either at one of our regular open mornings or for an individual visit. During the current period of national lockdown, which will last until at least February half term, we are also able to offer online visits with the Headmaster when he will take you on an online tour of the school and answer any questions that you have.

Whether you come to an open morning or have an individual visit, you will have a tour of the school with our Headmaster Mr Price and get to meet staff and boys.

Most boys join The Mall in Reception, aged 4. They come from a variety of nurseries with some boys having been in full-time nursery education and others in part-time settings or with a childminder or nanny. We are non-selective for entry into Reception, so if you are interested in your son coming to The Mall, an early registration is advised to secure his place.

Boys may also join us at the age of 7 into Year 3 or age 8 into Year 4. Entry is competitive and registered boys are invited to come to into school for an assessment day.

Entry into other year groups and immediate entry

If you are considering entry into another year group, either for an immediate place or for the following academic year, please email for current availability. All boys, including those looking to join during Reception, will be invited to come into school to spend a day with their peer group, during which an age appropriate assessment will take place.

Unfortunately, we do not usually admit boys into the school during Year 5 or 6.

If you have any questions about any aspect of admissions into the school, please do not hesitate to contact me on or 0208 614 1082.
