Prep School Admissions

From Nursery to Year 6, our pupils enjoy a stimulating and nurturing environment in which they have the space and time to learn, play and explore. Find out how your child can join us.


We want to make it as easy as possible for you to join us and recommend that you take the following steps to help you decide whether our school is the perfect place for your child.

Come see us

Please get in touch with our admissions team on [email protected] to arrange a visit.

We would love to show you around our school and introduce you to our dedicated staff.

Registering for a Place

All children will need to be registered with the school before they are considered for a place.

This involves a short form, which you can fill in by creating an account here or download via the ‘Additional Information & Forms’ section below. Just hit the down arrow for the registration form.

Entrance Assessment

Whilst there is no formal entrance assessment into our Prep School, we would like to meet prospective parents and their children to ensure their suitability and potential.  We will request copies of previous school reports and, from Year 3 onwards, review their reading, writing and maths ability.

Pupils in the Prep school do not have to take an assessment to enter the Senior School.

Becoming a WBS Prep Pupil

Hopefully, we will be in a position to offer your child a place at West Buckland and we will guide you through the processes leading up to the day your child joins us.

If you’re already enrolled and completed the admissions process, then head over to the Prep School New Starter page for information packs.
