Virtual Admissions Process

Thank you for your interest in Heywood Prep. Although we are unable to welcome visitors onto our lovely school site at the moment, we are still open. We invite you to join Head Rebecca Mitchell for a bespoke virtual tour, and our Admissions Team is available for enquiries.

We also hope that our website and videos give you a flavour of what our school has to offer. We will be delighted to show you around in person just as soon as we can, and until then look forward to meeting you virtually!

For clarity during this time, we have outlined our virtual admissions process and contact information below:

Our Virtual Admissions Process

Step 1 – Initial Enquiry

Please click on the ‘Register an Enquiry’ button above completing as much information as possible.

Step 2 – Enquiry Response

The School Registrar, Mrs Lauren Harmon, will be in contact via telephone to assist further with your enquiry and to answer any questions you might have. Mrs Harmon would also be delighted to arrange a virtual bespoke tour of the school with the Headmistress.

Step 3 – Enjoy a personalised virtual tour with Rebecca Mitchell

This will start with a virtual meeting with Mrs Mitchell, when you can ask any questions you have and Mrs Mitchell will be able to learn a little more about what you are looking for in a school and to give you an insight into life at Heywood Prep. She will then take you on a virtual tour, visiting different classrooms and the outside space, seeing learning as it happens, so that you can experience life in our happy school. The tour will be tailored according to what interests you most.

Step 4 – Register for a place

Following your meeting with the Headmistress should you wish to register your child(ren) for a place at Heywood Prep we would invite you to complete the registration form and pay the £50 registration fee.

Step 5 – Offer of a place

Upon receipt of the registration form and fee, subject to a satisfactory school report, academic reference and video meeting, Mrs Mitchell’s decision to offer a place will be immediate and will avoid any unnecessary delay during this lockdown period. Mrs Harmon will arrange to send the following documents through to you electronically:

  • Offer Letter
  • Terms & Conditions
  • Medical Form
  • Parental Acceptance Form ( £500 deposit for Nursery to Year 6)

Step 6 – Acceptance

If you wish to accept the offer of a place we ask that you return the relevant documents and deposit. As soon as the forms and payment is submitted, your child’s place at Heywood Prep will have been secured. Mrs Harmon will confirm receipt with you electronically.
