Kindergarten places are allocated on a ‘first come, first served basis’ where we look at the number of days between the date of birth and the date of registration with us. We begin the process of offering Kindergarten places approximately 18 months prior to entry. The Rowans is co-educational, so we aim to maintain a good balance of girls and boys where possible.
The Rowans is selective from Reception upwards. Selection for Reception entry is based on a child’s potential to thrive in our School environment, which is established through an Observed Play Session, as well as a report from their nursery or current school. Our Observed Play Sessions for entry into Reception are held approximately 8 months prior to entry. The Observed Play Session for Reception 2023 will be at the beginning of January 2023.
Occasional places arise from time to time in the older year groups. These places are also offered on the basis of an assessment and a report from the child’s current school. Parents should contact the School Office for current details of availability.
Registrations are accepted from birth, as soon as the Birth Certificate is available. There are a limited number of places on offer, so parents are advised to complete the Registration Form as soon as possible. You will see a Registration Form below.
We would recommend that you download the Word version, complete electronically and return it to the Registrar via email as soon as possible. The Registration Fee can be paid by bank transfer, and a photograph of your child’s birth certificate sent as an attachment via email.
If you would like any more information about this process, please do not hesitate to contact the Registrar Registrar@rowans.org.uk or telephone
