Admissions Procedure

Admission at 4+

The Hall admits approximately 50 boys into Reception classes (aged 4+) every September. Assessments for these places are held in the preceding Spring Term.  

Due to the high current rate of applications to the school, parents are recommended to register their son as early as possible and are required to do so before his second birthday.

First, the online Registration form should be completed:

You will then receive an acknowledgement letter emailed from The Hall, with instructions about how to complete your application. This is an automated email from that is sent to the email addresses you provided when you registered; please do check your junk mailbox if you don’t receive anything.  If we do not receive the required information (confirmation of the registration payment and a copy of your son’s birth certificate), we won’t be able to complete the application, and your son won’t be registered with us. 

The current non-refundable fee that should accompany a Registration for application into Reception at The Hall is £100. Please include a reference to your son’s full name with the transfer so that we can match up the completed Registration Form to the payment. Thank you.

Please note that if you register your son after he has turned 2 years old, he will not be considered for entry into Reception at 4+. Please find further information about our Occasional Places Register here: Occasional Places | The Hall School

Admission at 11+

Each year in early February, we welcome a small number of applicants to sit an 11+ assessment for selection into Year 7 the following September.  These students usually have a conditional place at a London senior school for their Year 9 and would benefit from two years of prep school education beforehand.

Parents interested in their son being included in the annual assessment examinations (in the academic year in which the boy concerned reaches his eleventh birthday) should contact the Registrar, completing a registration form for the Occasional Places Register, for which there is an administration fee of £50 (payable by bank transfer or cheque to The Hall School Charitable Trust) along with a completed curriculum vitae for their son (available from the Registrar).

Admission to other Year Groups; the Occasional Places Register

Very occasionally, places may arise in Years 1 (5+) to 6 (11+) when a family relocates from London, or a boy leaves the school for other reasons.

At the start of September, the beginning of the school year, boys who were assessed for a 4+ place and were not offered a place in Reception, but were placed on the ‘Waiting List’ following assessment, will be automatically moved to the ‘Occasional Places’ register.  The boy’s details will remain on the Occasional Places Register for as long as the family continues to be interested in a place at The Hall.

Other parents who have missed the ‘window’ of registration (24 months from birthdate), yet still desire a place for their son in one of the higher year groups at The Hall, should complete a registration form for the Occasional Places Register, for which there is an administration fee of £50.

The school will endeavour to keep in touch on a regular basis to check that families continue to be interested in a place.  Since the main channels for communication between The Hall and the applicants are by email and telephone, it is very important, please, that prospective parents keep the school abreast of any changes in their contact details through contact with the Registrar (07739 061977) and
