Joining Norland

Reception Entry


Children usually enter Norland in Reception in the September following their fourth birthday. Reception has two parallel, coeducational classes comprising 12 boys and 12 girls.


Children should be registered as soon as possible after birth. We operate a ‘definite list’ and a ‘waiting list’.

Four ‘definite’ places (two boys’ and two girls’) are allocated to children born and registered in each calendar month, on a first come, first served basis. Once these places have been distributed, subsequent registrations are given ‘waiting list’ places. Families with waiting list places should be reassured that we do make use of the waiting list every year.

Norland Place operates a sibling policy whereby children who have older brothers or sisters in the school are given priority on the waiting list.
