What says..

She was previously deputy head of St Nicholas Prep in Kensington, and has taught all classes from reception to year 6 in London schools.


Life begins at playgroup level and children are mostly siblings of current pupils. Then the nursery takes around 30 children out of the 120 applicants. Reception, the following year, takes the same number out of a similar number of applicants. Occasional places thereafter, but around 10 children out of 40-odd are taken into year 3.

Criteria are refreshing – first come siblings, then children of former pupils, then families who live closest and finally, those who fit the...
