Thank you for your interest in our school. As a result of the current coronavirus crisis, we are changing the way we are working to provide parents with the peace of mind that they can still plan for their child’s educational future through our Virtual Admissions Process. You can still contact the team using the information below.

At Breaside Preparatory School, we welcome applications from families of all cultures, ethnic groups and religions.  We are an academically selective school with waiting lists for some year groups.  Places are offered in accordance with our Admissions Policy.

Entry into the Kindergarten (2½-4 years)
Children join Breaside in the Kindergarten from the age of 2½ and take advantage of the crucially important early years where children learn and play in a safe, friendly and structured environment. Our Early Years Curriculum is broad and balanced and great emphasis is placed on the child’s individual needs and progress.

Entry into the Prep (4-11 years)
Besides our children moving up from the Kindergarten, entry into the Prep (Reception and Years 1-6) is according to the availability of places and the meeting of our entry requirements.
