For those interested in a place in Kindergarten for their child, why not come along and visit us during the summer term.

To book a visit to Hampton Pre-Prep, please complete the form linked here with your contact details. Our Admissions team will contact you to arrange a private visit to our Kindergarten on 41-43 Wensleydale Road Hampton TW12 2LP. Visits are available Monday to Thursday between 9:30 and 11am or 1:45pm to 3pm. Play Visit assessments are held every Tuesday afternoon.


During their time at Pre-Prep, children progress through the Early Years Foundation Stage (Kindergarten and Reception) and Key Stage One (Year 1 and Year 2). At the end of Year 2, the boys currently automatically move into Year 3 in Hampton Prep and the girls move on to their next school.

Girls are well prepared for 7+ assessments to a variety of schools, including the junior departments of Lady Eleanor Holles School, Surbiton Girls’ Prep, St Catherine’s School, Claremont Fan Court School and Radnor House.

The main entry point to Hampton Pre-Prep for girls and boys is Kindergarten when a total of 22 pupils are admitted.

Entry at age 3

Children enter Kindergarten in the September following their third birthday for a minimum of three morning sessions per week, or for whole days. Once children have progressed to five morning sessions, boys and girls have the option of attending afternoon sessions.

Children born between 1 September 2020 and 31 August 2021 will be entering Kindergarten from September 2024.  Registration for this entry point is open.

Entry at other ages

Children wishing to join Hampton Pre-Prep in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 will be invited to visit the School prior to entry, as and when places arise. They will meet the Head of Pre-Prep and the Head of Learning Support (Pre-Prep), and spend time with prospective classmates. During the visit, we will seek to establish overall academic potential through predominantly skills-based, teacher-led assessments.


Visit Us

We recommend families visit the school at one of our open events to meet the staff and children and get a feel for the facilities.

Kindergarten Play Visits

We invite all Kindergarten applicants to attend a ‘play’ visit where they will meet our staff. This will help us and parents assess whether Hampton Pre-Prep is the right environment for their child, and one in which they will be happy and thrive.

Registration is open for children wishing to enter the Kindergarten from September 2024. 


Parents are notified of the outcome of the Kindergarten Play Visits within ten days. Those in receipt of offers will have an acceptance deadline, at which point a deposit will be required to secure the place.

The same process is followed for any families in receipt of occasional place offers.

Useful information

Please note that the Pre-Prep is situated in a period building which is not suitable for children with mobility difficulties.
