1. When should I register my child?

You can register at any time.  For nursery, Reception and Year 3 it’s best to do this as soon as you know that you want your child to come to Edgeborough.  Usually prospective parents follow this process:

– Contact the Admissions Registrar on 01252 792495 or https://www.edgeborough.co.uk/come-and-visit-us/

– Review the information pack that we send you about the School.

– Book to visit the school, have a tour and meet the Headmaster.

– Register your child (a £100 registration fee is required).

– Book a taster day for your child to visit the school.

– Following a meeting with the Headmaster, we are usually able to offer a place to your child.
