Reception Offers are made in order of date of registration, sixteen months ahead of entry. Once parents accept an offer (agreeing to the terms of the parent contract and making payment of the deposit), we invite children to two Stay and Play sessions before they join us, so they are settled and ready to begin their school journey in the Autumn.

The process is outlined below with a timeline for Reception 2026 entry. Contact the registrar on admissions@maplewalkschool.co.uk for information on how to apply for the remaining places in Reception 2025.


MAY 2025: RECEPTION 2026 OFFERS BEGIN

Receiving & Accepting Your Offer

We begin making offers sixteen months ahead of entry into Reception. Offers are sent out in order of date of registration (with siblings of current pupils given priority).

To secure the place, payment of your deposit will be due within 10 days of your offer, along with signed agreement to terms of parent contract.

Note: A place cannot be secured without payment of deposit and submission of the signed acceptance form (to agree to terms of parent contract).


FEBRUARY 2026: SPRING STAY & PLAY

Meet & Greet Stay & Play

All children whose places have been accepted are invited to school in February for a stay and play session. This is an opportunity to meet teachers and potential classmates.

Parents are asked to advise the school of any relevant updates in their child’s needs (medical or developmental) since time of registration.

Please refer to our Admissions Policy


MARCH 2026: RECEPTION 2026 FIRST TERM’S FEES

Autumn Term Fees Due

Fees for the Reception class Autumn term are due by the end of the previous Spring term.

Fees are reviewed each year by Directors. Reception 2026 Autumn fees will be due at the new 2026/27 rate.


JUNE 2026: SUMMER STAY & PLAY

Welcome Back Stay & Play

Children joining Reception in September and their parents are welcomed back to school.

Children meet their new teachers and play. Parents receive information to help prepare for entry to Reception in September.  

Once again, parents are asked to advise school of any relevant updates in child’s needs (medical or developmental) to help prepare for the transition.

The best way to see the school in action is to book onto an open morning. These events last approximately an hour – you will have an opportunity to meet the Head and have a tour of the school led by the Year Six pupils. We look forward to welcoming you to Maple Walk soon.
