We welcome visits from parents who are considering Little Acorn for their child.  We hold open events and school visits and our next open event will be for parents of children registered for January 2020 entry and will take place in August 2019.For all other parents, please register for an upcoming tour by contacting Miss Kira at


Starting at Little Acorn

Children enter the school in January in the first term unless a place becomes available at other times.

We have four classes:

  • Little Acorns - the year they turn 2 

  • Little Sprouts- the year they turn 3

  • Little Saplings- the year they turn 4

  • Little Oaks- the year they turn 5


Entrance Procedure

How to apply

There are three steps to our entrance procedure:  register your child, receive the offer of a place if available and, finally, acceptance of the offer.

As we are currently renovating, you do not need to have visited the school before you register your child.  But that said, we do require you to have visited the school before you finally commit to sending your child to us. So please do make time to schedule a visit before the offers of places are sent out. 

Once you have decided that Little Acorn is the right school for your son or daughter, or think it might be, the next step is to register your child.  Registration has two steps: email and we will send you a registration form to complete and return to us. Alternatively, you can fill in a hard copy form, available from Miss Kira Wood.  By registering you are formalising your interest in Little Acorn and you are securing your child’s position on the waiting list for your chosen start date.  We will acknowledge your registration.

Once you’ve registered, the next thing that happens is either that you visit the school if you didn’t visit before registering or that you await an offer of a place for your child.  Places are offered in registration order with priority given to brothers and sisters of children already at the school.

When you receive your offer, you will also be given instructions on how to accept the offer.  In brief, this will involve:

  • Returning the acceptance form, agreeing to the terms of the contract with the school.

  • Making a payment of the amount indicated on the offer letter, which will be equivalent to a term’s fees at the time the offer is sent.

We have tried to keep the entrance process as straightforward as we can, but we know lots of parents will still have questions about it. We are here to help. If you would like to discuss any aspect of admission, please contact Miss Kira Wood, by emailing
