Introduction to Admissions | Abingdon Prep School

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the school site is closed and the Admissions Department is working remotely. We are unable to answer any telephone calls or get back to answerphone messages during this time but please do email us and we will organise a ‘virtual’ meeting with you and we are very happy to answer any questions. Please email:

Admissions Manager: Ellie Harland
Phone: +44 (0)1865 392303

Firstly, please do get in touch with me, by email or phone, if you have any queries or you would just like to talk through the admissions process. Whether you are familiar with independent education or considering it for the first time, some parents find the process a bit daunting. If this is the case please get in touch, I am very happy to help at any time.

The next thing to do is to visit us! There are plenty of opportunities; we have open mornings every term and we also recommend individual visits where I can show you around and explain everything you need to know about the school and the entry process. You will also have a meeting with the Headmaster and we can discuss any particular interests – musical, drama, art, academic or sport, that your son may have. To arrange a visit please email and I will get back to you.

We welcome boys from age 4-13. Our main entry points are Reception and Year 3 (aged 7+) and we usually have some places available in other years. Please see the admissions procedures for information about the process or just get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you.
