Prep Admissions ( 4-10 )
We understand that choosing the right Prep School 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 Team are here to ensure you have a seamless journey whether your child is starting school for the first time or joining us in Prep 1- Prep 6.
Our curriculum is designed to enable children to journey confidently on the road to becoming effective learners for life.
Reception class pupils follow Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage while from Prep 1 to Prep 6 National Curriculum content is used as a basis for Teaching and Learning.
Throughout, children are exposed to opportunities that enhance their learning in ways not always found in other schools. A considerable amount of individual attention is provided through small class sizes and a high teacher-to-pupil ratio. Every class has access to a classroom assistant enabling 1:1 or small group support.
As children progress through Prep School, they get more involved with Senior School and attend lessons including Science, Languages and the Arts, They also participate in Sport and take advantage of all that Senior School has to offer.

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 4 - Sit the Entrance Assessment and Attend a Taster Day
Once you have completed and returned your registration form our Admissions Team will be in contact to arrange a date for your child to sit our entrance assessment and to spend time in our School with their year group.
Reception children also receive a visit from the Head of Early Years, in their Kindergarten setting which provides an opportunity to learn more about your child and get to know them. Children are also invited to events such as “Teddy Bears’ Picnic” and settling-in sessions prior to joining our Reception class.
Step 5 - Offer of A Place
After your child has completed the entrance assessment, and we feel that Wisbech Grammar School is the right academic setting for them, our Admissions Team will send out offer letters, parent contracts and acceptance forms.
