Admission Policy

Fairfield Preparatory School is an independent school, open to boys and girls aged 4 to 11 (National Curriculum years Reception to Year 6).

The school is part of the Loughborough Endowed Schools which also includes Loughborough High School (upper school for girls) and Loughborough Grammar School (upper school for boys).

Most children progress from Fairfield to the upper schools, but that progress is not automatic and pupils sit the 11+ examination on equal terms with external candidates.

The major points of entry are at 4+ (for entry into Reception) and 7+, 8+, 9+ and 10+ for entry into years 3 to 6.

The school is open to applications from boys and girls, irrespective of race, nationality, colour, ethnic or national origin, religion or creed, disability or previous educational background.

In particular, the school is fully aware of its responsibilities to ensure compliance with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Act and Gender discrimination legislation.

Admission to the school depends on meeting the criteria required.  The school endeavours to encourage as wide a range of applications as possible.
