Reception Admissions

Joining The Mall at Reception

Admission into Reception at the age of 4 is non-selective. All boys who join Reception each September will automatically transfer through the school until they leave at the end of Year 6.

As we are non-selective for entry into Reception, if you are keen for your son to join us, we do recommend registering him at least 18 months in advance of him joining the school. Once you register with us, you will be invited to regular events designed to give you and your son lots of opportunities to get to know us and make the settling in process when he starts at school as smooth as possible.

After you confirm your Reception place, you will start to receive our fortnightly e-newsletters and attend a series of events to help prepare your son for starting school and to get to know the other families in your year group.

Joining The Mall in September 2020

We do still have places to join us in Reception 2020. During the summer holidays we can organise an online meeting if you would like to have an initial discussion and then as soon as is possible we would be delighted to welcome you on an individual visit. Please email for more information about 2020 entry.

Joining The Mall in September 2021

As we are now confirming places for entry in September 2021, if you are interested in your son joining us in next September, please get in touch to book a place on a small group tour or arrange an individual visit and tour with the Headmaster.
