Bursaries

We are delighted to be able to currently offer one bursary place for Prep entry (Year 3) each year. Each bursary, up to 100%, is subject to means testing, and is offered to a child who would flourish in the Lorenden environment and would otherwise have no opportunity whatsoever to access such a wonderful education.

School Fees

Fees for pupils cover their tuition, school stationery and books. Fees also include school lunches, non-residential school outings and personal accident cover for pupils.

Open days

Traditional Open Mornings happen three times a year but you won’t find us standing on ceremony on these occasions.  Rather, you will be welcomed to see us as we work and play as normal so you can appreciate what really happens in the school! You are very welcome to visit on any day, whether an Open Morning or not.

Tours and Visits

Tours and visits are the best way to really experience Lorenden.  We welcome you to come on any day to meet us, our staff and our children and to see the fantastic environment we have for your children to thrive in.

Tours and Visits

Nursery

Nursery children are welcome full or part-time.  We accept nursery vouchers up to fifteen hours per week.  For part-time pupils we recommend that the number of sessions attended are increased throughout the year as children who are able to attend full-time during the Summer term are gently prepared for full-time education in the September.

Reception

Entry to Reception is in the September after the child's fourth birthday.

Pre-Prep Department

Entry to the Pre-Prep is usually after a child has successfully visited for half a day.

Prep Department

Entry to the Prep Department (7-11 year olds) may be subject to an Entrance Test comprising Verbal/Non Verbal Reasoning and Mathematics: this to give us standardised scores that will give a projection of success at 11+.  Children are invited to spend a day with their peers where any tests and observations will be undertaken alongside a typical day.

Allocation of places

When allocating places, priority is given if there are siblings already at Lorenden. When there is more than one child competing for a place in the Prep Department, priority will be given to the child with the highest marks in the Entrance Test. Extenuating circumstances will always be considered.
