Children can join Hyde Park School from the term that they turn 3. Children can then stay at our beautiful Marble Arch site until the end of the Reception year (age 5) when they will seamlessly move to our Preparatory School in South Kensington, Queens’ Gate for Form 1 and stay until Form 6. Our minibus ensures that children can be dropped to whichever location is more convenient for parents – we will get them to where they need to be!
We are non-selective at Hyde Park School and places are allocated on a first come, first served basis; registering early is advised to ensure that your child is offered a place.
Before your child is due to start at Hyde Park School they will be invited to attend an informal assessment. This is an opportunity for the class teacher to meet your child and for them to meet some of their class friends. During this time we like to find out more about children’s likes and dislikes and this is achieved through consulting with the parents or carer, together with teacher’s observations.
We have a settling in policy, although this is adapted to meet the needs of individual children and is discussed with the parents accordingly; we value children’s individual needs we understand that ‘one hat’ does not fit all.
