Applications can be made for girls to enter at age 11+, 13+ and the Sixth Form. The process normally begins at least a year prior to entry. Initially, prospective parents and students are invited to attend an Open Morning which is held three times a year. An individual tour of the school and attendance at a Meet the Head Coffee Morning can also be arranged and parents are asked to contact the Admissions Team to book a place at an event. Parents who would like their daughter to be considered for a place complete a registration form and are asked to pay a non refundable fee of £100 (UK) or £150 (Overseas) prior to the October half-term, the year before entry.
Applicants are offered a place following the satisfactory completion of the School’s own entrance examination papers and receipt of a written confidential reference and recent report from the applicant’s current School. The Head is also entitled to take into account any particular attribute that suggests a candidate may benefit from a Prior’s Field education. Adjustments for pupils will be made as necessary in relation to our admissions arrangements, the provision of education we provide at the School and access to any appropriate benefits, facilities or services. Prior’s Field has policies on equal opportunities, admissions, behaviour (including rewards and sanctions) and exclusions, all of which have been drawn up in the light of current legislation.
Prior’s Field is a popular, over-subscribed School. If all other factors are equal, when offering places we take into account the date of registration. The School has limited facilities for disabled pupils but will do all that is reasonable to comply with its legal and moral responsibilities under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995, the Special Educational Needs and Disability Act 2001, and the Equality Act 2010.
Prior’s Field provides a superb, all-round education, welcoming girls of all abilities.The Good Schools Guide 2.0
