Key Dates

There are lots of dates to bear in mind when making an application to Lingfield. These can vary according to the year of entry. Please see our guide to admissions for details on the process. All dates may be subject to change. 

Reception - Year 6 

We take applications for Reception to Year 6 places throughout the year. Although we have no formal closing date we strongly advise parents to visit us and apply as early as possible to secure a place as they are limited. Parents are able to register their children with us from birth, we recommend registering by the end of the Autumn Term the year before entry, or by the Spring Term at the latest. 

  • Nursery children have priority access to the Prep School.
