Admissions Procedure 

Choosing the right school for your child is clearly a very important decision, with many factors to take into consideration. We offer you a range of information here on our website which we hope will help you in your decision making process. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Pupils usually join WGPS at 3+ and 7+

However, occasionally spaces in other year groups become available, so it is always worth contacting us to find out if any spaces are available. You can also register your child's name online so that if a space does become available the Registrar can contact you to let you know. 

Here is our basic step by step guide to applying for a place at Woodford Green Preparatory School:

  • Sign up for an Open Event.
  • Complete the registration form online (a registration fee is required). Please note we no longer allow pre-birth registrations (NB: completion of a registration form does not guarantee a place).
  • If your child is joining us in Year 3 they will be required to sit our 7+ assessment.  Please click here for details.
  • If a place is offered, you are asked to pay an acceptance deposit, or decline the offer by the deadline date.

The gardening club have been extremely productive this term! Alongside gardening activities, they've been caring for minibeasts, building bug hotels to provide a safe space for hibernation. You can spot the new insect accommodation amongst the WGPS foliage.....all bugs welcome! https://t.co/LwY3NZNwnp

Remembrance 2021. A two minute silence was observed with the Last Post played by Mrs Henderson. Each class made a wreath out of poppies they created at home. As long as the rain holds off at pick up, parents can see the wreaths displayed in the playground. https://t.co/lsS8f4QIf0
