At Vernon Lodge, we welcome pupils from 2 to 11 years, from all abilities and backgrounds to ensure a healthy diversity in our community. Our main entry points into the school are Kindergarten (age 2) Lower Prep (age 4) and Year 3 (age 7), however, we will welcome new pupils at any stage.
After your initial tour of the school, if you are considering choosing Vernon Lodge, your child will be invited back to join us for 2 trial days. This will not only give them a chance to experience a small taste of life at Vernon Lodge, we will be able to assess if Vernon Lodge will be the right fit for your family. We recommend that Kindergarten children attend 2 sessions which will be arranged with our Head of Early Years.
Although there is no exam for entrance to our main school, we do request that parents and children attend a formal interview in addition to the child’s trial days at school to ensure that we can fully accommodate the educational and social needs of your child. Each application is carefully evaluated on an individual basis, taking into account the outcome of the interview and where appropriate, references from your child’s previous school.
Entrance to the Kindergarten is dependent on your child’s experience during their 2 sessions and an informal chat with our Head of Early Years and Head Teacher.
Where possible, we attempt to accommodate siblings and give every consideration to the importance of preserving stability and continuity for our pupils and their families.
Tours of the school take place on a Wednesday and Friday and can be arranged by calling the School Office on 01902 850568 or emailing email@example.com
