Registrations must be made using our online registration form.

A copy of your child’s birth certificate or valid passport must be uploaded together with your registration form for all applications.

A non-returnable registration fee of £125 is required; once you have submitted the registration form, you will be emailed the link to our payment page.

To have your child considered for an Assisted Place (a means tested place designed to support children from lower income families), please do not complete this registration form.

Instead you should complete the Initial Assessment of Income Form.


Upon acceptance of a place, we require a £1000 deposit. The deposit should be paid online; we are not able to accept cash payments.

If your child receives an Assisted Place, this deposit will also be means tested.

Entrance Tests

Applicants for entry at 7+ are invited into the Preparatory School for testing on two separate occasions in the January before proposed entry.  The maths and non-verbal reasoning sections of our entrance test take place here at Bancroft’s Prep on Monday 8 January 2024.

The purpose of our entrance processes is not to make Bancroft’s more academically selective, but to help us make offers to children who we feel will benefit most from the education we offer.  We receive many more applications than we have places.  Some candidates may be placed on a waiting list following the tests and may be offered places if vacancies arise.
