Joining Heywood Prep follows a clear and simple admissions process. We have an open door policy, inviting prospective parents to contact us at any time throughout the year to arrange a visit to the school to meet the Headmistress, Rebecca Mitchell. We also hold a number of Open Days and events throughout the year providing further opportunities for prospective parents to see Heywood Prep in action.
Admission to Heywood Prep is open to all who meet our entry requirements, regardless of gender, race, religious, socio-economic or cultural background. Heywood Prep is pleased to accept applications for children to join in various age groups and maintains a partially selective policy for admissions. The school is, therefore, mixed ability by mature and in keeping with its aims to provide a balanced, well-rounded education.
Our policy is to admit children who will benefit from an academic education and who will contribute to and benefit from the ethos and activities of our school community. We will only admit a child and their family who meet these criteria.
Children in Year 1 and above are offered the opportunity to attend two assessment days before joining the school and for those pupils who are starting school for the first time, a full programme of familiarisation and preparation takes place during the Summer Term.
Our main entry points are in the Nursery (from the age of two), in Reception (age four) and in Year 3 (age seven), however we do accept applications to join the school in other year groups subject to space. Where children join the school part-way through their education, we work closely with the child, the parents and their previous school to ensure a smooth transition.
If you would like your child to be considered for joining Heywood Prep, please complete a Registration Form. Admission to Heywood Prep is at the discretion of the Headmistress and completion of a Registration Form does not guarantee that a place will be offered.
Due to strong demand for places in our Nursery, priority is given to children who commit to continue through to our Reception class.

All admissions are subject to our Admissions Policy.
