Submit your application

When you’re ready to apply to Woodford Green Preparatory School, please submit your application form. Please note that all applications have a £100 fee and applications must be in before our first assessment date.

Please review our admissions policy and note that pupils who are working ‘on track’ with us, are working significantly above the national curriculum expectations for a Year 2 pupil. 

At WGPS we have a bespoke tracking system for all pupils and discuss the pupils academic, social and emotional progress during termly meetings with the Deputy Head, Assistant Head, Learning Skills Leader and class teachers. 

Please also include in your application if your child is particularly musical or sporty, and our Director of Music and Director of Sport will be in touch with you to discuss how we could further stretch your child’s abilities if they were to gain a place. We will also request a reference from your child’s school and a copy of their latest report in advance of the assessment day.

If you are applying for an Assisted Place, application forms for September 2024 entry and all documents need to be emailed to: admin@schoolbursaryguide.com 

Telephone 01622 725712 or email admin@schoolbursaryguide.com for all queries.

Assessment Dates

Once you have registered, we will contact you to arrange an assessment date for your child. The assessments themselves are computerised and consist of a general maths test, mental arithmetic test and reading test. There is also a writing test which is completed by hand.

Please ensure your child is familiar with using a mouse and computer prior to the examinations. 

4Meeting Your Child

Meeting Your Child

The children will be interviewed by the Head or a member of the Senior Leadership Team on the day of their assessments.

This is a great way of getting to know the children and will focus predominantly on the children’s interests.

Successful candidates are asked to respond to any offer within the time specified on the offer letter.

Some candidates who narrowly missed out on an offer of will be added to a reserve list, which remains active for the rest of the academic year. We will inform you if this applies to your child.

6Welcome to WGPS!

Welcome to WGPS!

To ensure pupils feel ready to join our WGPS family, we host a transition day for all new 7+ joiners in July, which includes a transition picnic in the afternoon with new parents and current parents alike.

This is a wonderful opportunity for children to get to know their new teachers and classmates, and for parents to feel a part of our the school community from the onset.
