We are delighted you are interested in the Richard Pate School for your child’s education.

Pupils can be admitted at any age, subject to the availability of places but most enter aged 3 or 7 (Nursery or Year 3).  The decision on whether or not to accept an external pupil into the Preparatory Department is taken after a preliminary visit.

External pupils looking for a place in the Junior Department are required to take assessments in March, at which time a limited number of 7+ scholarships may be awarded (full details are available from Mrs Hayman in the School Office).  Before any child can be considered for entry to the school, both parents must complete an application form below and return it to the Headmaster together with the current registration and assessment fee.

To find out more about joining, to request a prospectus or to book a visit, please contact Mrs Hayman on 01242 522086 or send an email to: admissions@richardpate.co.uk.

Our prospectus is also available online by clicking here.

We currently have places available in Nursery and Year 1 2021, with a few in other year groups too.

We look forward to meeting you.
