Year 3 & 4

Year 3 Entry

Depending on spaces we welcome a small number of children to our Prep School at the beginning of Year 3. 

Each year group in Years 3 and 4 comprises three separate classes with a maximum size of 21. From Year 3, we introduce setting for Maths and English across four sets, and from Year 4 for French across three sets. This helps us to provide personalised teaching in terms of both content and the most suitable pace of learning for your child.


Admissions is extremely busy so please register your child for a place at Hoe Bridge School early by completing our online registration form and £100 registration fee HERE.


Assessment Day

We hold a Year 3 Assessment Day in the Autumn term the year before entry. During the course of the day children take standardised assessments in English and Maths as well as enjoying activities in the classroom with our current cohort.

Please contact admissions to discuss further by completing our enquiry form HERE.



If offered a place parents are required to sign our school contract and pay a £750 deposit within two weeks of your offer to confirm your child’s place. Please note that this deposit is non-refundable if you choose not to take up the place.



Once accepting a place, children joining our Reception classes visit Hoe Bridge for settling-in sessions in the autumn, spring and summer term in the academic year before they join. This is a chance to meet our teaching staff and make new friends ensuring a smooth transition and an exciting start to you all joining the Hoe Bridge family!
