Kindergarten Admissions ( 3+)
Early Years Foundation Stage
The first years of a child’s life are when the foundations are laid to pave the way to their educational journey, and at Wisbech Grammar School we aim to provide the best quality Early Years Education for your child.
Answering the call from our parents to extend the provision already on offer within the Prep section of Wisbech Grammar School, we are excited to announce our Kindergarten class which opened in September 2018. The Kindergarten provides a creative environment allowing our pupils to begin the journey towards discovering who they are through exploring, playing and by spending time with enthusiastic and well-trained adults.
By embedding Kindergarten within our Prep School, we will be providing parents with the opportunity of experiencing all that Wisbech Grammar School has to offer, that little bit sooner.
Our teaching staff are highly committed to researching current initiatives to ensure we provide an enriching and enabling environment (both indoors and out) in which children can develop and grow. The high level of pastoral care continues as our children grow into young adults throughout their educational journey with us. We endeavour to develop independent, resilient and inquisitive learners, as we believe these skills help set children up for life-long success.
We understand that choosing the right Kindergarten and getting the right support for your child is a big decision and we aim to make the admissions process as simple and smooth as possible for our prospective families. Our dedicated Admissions and Early Years Team are here to ensure you have a seamless journey at the different entry points and are on hand to explain our entrance procedures and settling in sessions for Kindergarten.
Step 1 - Enquire About A Place
We welcome children into the Kindergarten class from the age of 3. To enquire about a place and discover more about our Kindergarten – including session times, costs and term dates – please contact our Admissions Team on 01945 586750 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
At this stage you will receive an Enquiry Form for completion. It is an expectation of the School that those children attending our Kindergarten will join our Reception Class.
Step 2 – Visit the Kindergarten
The admissions journey usually begins with a visit to the Kindergarten. The best way to get to know the Kindergarten is by meeting with our Senior Deputy Head of Prep School and having a tour of the Kindergarten. We can arrange a convenient time for an individual visit and we also run open events which we warmly invite you to attend.
Step 3 - Reservation of A Place
On receipt of a completed Enquiry Form, based on availability we will reserve a place for your child.
Step 4 - Completion of Registration Form
The next step is to register your child by completing the Registration Form. Your registration will be confirmed once payment of the registration fee has been received.
Step 5 - Home Visits Arranged and Invitation to Attend an Assessment Session in Kindergarten.
On completion of the Registration Form, in the term prior to joining, we will be in touch to arrange a home visit as well as a date for you to visit our Kindergarten. We will then confirm your place based on the suitability of our Early Years setting for your child.
