Reception (4+)

Children may join King’s Rochester Reception Classes in the Pre-Prep School in the September following their 4th birthday.

Offers of places are made following a brief, informal interview with the Headmistress and a short, simple assessment of the child. All children who are registered for entry are invited to interview. Many children join King’s from other local Nurseries as well as from our own Nursery. 

We hold fun, familiarisation days every November and March for children entering Reception in the following September, as well as information sessions for new Reception parents in the May preceding the September of entry.

Following your child’s registration and visit to School, the Headmistress will make a formal offer of a place and ask you to return an Acceptance Form if you wish your child to join us at King’s. An Acceptance Deposit is payable at the time of completing the acceptance form.

To book a visit for a tour and to meet the Headmistress, arrange a Nursery taster session for your child, or to find out more about Reception at King’s, please call our Registrar, Mrs Susan Webb on 01634 888590 or email

To register your interest in a Reception place at King's, please complete the Registration Form and post to the Registrar, Mrs Susan Webb at Satis House with a non-refundable cheque for £100 made payable to King's School Rochester.
