Admissions

Preparatory School Admissions Procedure 

The first step is to make an appointment to meet the Headmaster and look around the School. Alternatively you may simply wish to return the completed registration form and defer the visit until nearer the time of your child's year of entry.

In the year of designated entry you will receive an invitation to bring your child for an interview and assessment. On the result of this assessment and subject to availability, a place may be offered.

Please call Mrs Learmouth on 01752 831911 for further information or email prepschool@plymouthcollege.com
