Admission Process

We strive to ensure that our admissions process is straightforward and approachable, and our Admissions Secretary, Mrs. Clare Fayers is readily available to assist with any enquiries. For further information or to schedule a visit, please contact Clare on 01284 754654 or email her at

Arrange A Visit

The first step in our admissions process is to arrange a visit to our school. During your visit, you'll have the opportunity to tour our facilities, meet our staff, and experience the atmosphere of our school first-hand.

Book a Taster Day

Following your visit, families are welcome to book a taster day for their child. This provides an opportunity for your child to experience a typical day at our school, engage with their peers, and participate in classroom activities. 


Once you have decided that South Lee Prep School & Nursery is the right fit for your child, the next step is to complete the registration process. This involves filling out our registration form and returning it to our Admissions Secretary.

Offer of a Place

When a formal offer of a place is made, the School will write to parents enclosing an Acceptance Form for completion and requesting payment of a Deposit, which secures your child's place at our school.

Confirming a Place

The place will not be secured until the Acceptance Form has been completed, signed and returned, and the Deposit of £250.00 paid.

Confirmation Letter

Upon receipt of your Acceptance Form and Deposit, we write to you confirming that your child had a definite place.  After this, we will keep in touch until your child's joining date draws near, at which time you will receive further information and a detailed Induction pack. 

Visiting the School

Welcome to South Lee Prep School & Nursery, where every visit is an opportunity to experience the warmth and magic that permeate our halls.

We understand that choosing the right school for your child is a significant decision, and we're here to make the process as seamless and enlightening as possible. At South Lee Prep School & Nursery, we believe in celebrating the individuality of each child. Our dedicated members of staff are committed to providing a supportive and inclusive environment where every child can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

A visit to South Lee Prep School is more than just a tour of our facilities; it offers a first-hand glimpse into our unique ethos and vibrant community spirit. The magic of South Lee Prep School & Nursery isn't something you can put into words - it's something you have to experience for yourself. From laughter in the classrooms, to the excitement on the playground, there is something special about the atmosphere here that you won't find anywhere else. 

We offer two options for your visit:

  1. Open Mornings: Join us for one of our regular Open Mornings, where you can experience the buzz of our school community in a relaxed and informal setting.

  2. Personal Tours: If you prefer a more tailored experience or if the Open Morning dates don't suit you, we're happy to arrange a personal tour at a time that works for you.

Whether you are exploring our nursery or considering our prep school, a visit to South Lee Prep School and Nursery is your opportunity to discover the unique blend of academic excellence and pastoral care that sets us apart. 

We invite you to schedule a visit and experience the magic within our walls, as you witness first-hand the passion and dedication of our staff, the joyful laughter of our pupils, and the vibrant learning environment that inspires curiosity and creativity.
