Admissions

‘A superbly effective and brilliantly resourced school.’
Read The Good School Guide’s review of Hill House

Children can enter Hill House at any age between four and eleven years old, if places are available. There is no formal entry examination for children at four years old. Older children will be required to spend a morning with us for academic and pastoral assessment.

It is possible to register your interest in Hill House by using the online Pre-Registration Form. This must be completed before visiting the school.

Pre-Registration form

Stage One

Due to the current pandemic we have changed our protocols for visiting Hill House to ensure the safety of all our pupils, staff and visitors. Once you have completed the Pre-Registration Form you will be contacted by our Registrar to arrange a convenient time to visit. It is also possible to book a visit directly with the School Office (020 7584 1331). You will be asked to complete an online Covid questionnaire before you arrive at school to help with the NHS Test and Trace program. Your tour will include a visit the buildings relevant to the age of your child and an opportunity to meet a senior member of staff and a member of the Townend family.

Stage Two

Subject to a place being available we will write to you after your visit, offering your child a conditional place. To accept this offer a non-refundable Registration Fee of £100 per child is payable. Once we have received this, we will send you a confirmation card for a conditional place at Hill House.

Stage Three

For children entering in Small School (Reception – Aged 4) we will ask you to commit yourself to Hill House by sending the Entrance Fee of £500 two terms before entry. When this is received your child’s place at Hill House is guaranteed and thus no refund will be made in case of non-appearance.

For children entering in Lower School (Year 1) or above, a confirmed place will be offered subject to a successful assessment. We will then ask you to commit yourself to Hill House by sending the Entrance Fee of £500. When this is received your child’s place at Hill House is guaranteed and thus no refund will be made in case of non-appearance.

It is important to remember that if you change your address you keep us informed, so that we do not lose touch with you.
