Most children join the New School at the start of the new school year in September.

However, there are occasions when children will join part way through the year and we welcome those children and do our very best to make sure they are integrated into the class quickly and happily.

Taster days are also available and we are happy to welcome new children into the school so that they can get a really good feel for what the New School is all about.

If you would like to enquire about registering your child or children, please call Liz Brown on 01392 496122.


We aim to keep our fee structure as straightforward as possible. The fee for every full-time pupil is the same across the school, regardless of the year group they are in. The only differences occur when the child is part-time (in Class 1) or when in receipt of Early Years Vouchers (available for every child across the country until the term in which they are five years old). The school Bursar, would be able to help you with any inquiries regarding fees.
