Whilst many of our pupils will join us when starting school and progress onwards many children join Bilton Grange at different points due to a range of reasons.

Pre-School Admissions

Bilton Grange’s Pre-School The Nest offers a nurturing environment that encourages individual development and progress socially, emotionally and academically preparing each child to successfully progress and be ready for entering Reception the following year. The Nest offers 15 hours of Early Years Funding and settling in sessions for your child and caters for children aged three and above. A space in our Reception class is automatically reserved for children attending The Nest.

As we limit spaces in The Nest please contact our Admissions Team early to register on 01788 818246 .

Pre-Prep Admissions

Pupils join our Pre-Prep for Reception, Year 1, Year 2 and Year 3. Although we don’t formally assess children at the Pre-Prep we do strive to ensure that those enrolled are able to thrive happily in the school and that they will benefit from the breadth of education on offer.

Prep Admissions

Admissions to the Prep are welcomed and where spaces are not available a wait list is operated. Although we are not strictly a selective school during a child’s Taster Day we will assess them to ensure that they are able to access the curriculum taught and that they are able to make the most of the opportunities available to them.
