Admissions Process

Early registration is advised. If you would like to register your child please complete a Registration Form and return to the Registrar with a fee of £50. Completing a Cheam Registration form will provisionally get your child’s name on the list for entry, subject to our usual admissions requirements. Please be aware that we may be operating waiting lists in some year groups.

Last-minute and mid-year vacancies do often occur late in the day, due either to people’s plans changing, or because children are leaving the school.

Please contact the Registrar on or (0)1635 267822 if you are looking for a place.

The Registrar will acknowledge receipt of all registration forms and fees. It is vital that we have been informed of any change of address since registration, or you may miss a deadline and forfeit your place. We will invite all children who are registered to join the Prep School, to spend a day with us in the Autumn Term prior to a formal offer being made by the Headmster. The objective is to ensure that the children will be able to cope with the busy Cheam curriculum.

Once the offer of a place has been made by the school, the place can be secured by completing the Confirmation Form accepting the School’s Terms and Conditions as detailed in the Parent/School Contract. A refundable deposit of £1,250.00 is required.
