Keble is a non-selective school at Reception level, although at any entry point we seek to ensure that the boy will be happy and be able to make good progress. As the boys get older prospective pupils undertake some more rigorous assessment in order to gain a place.
There are two Open Days held in each academic year; the first takes place on a Saturday in the early part of the Autumn term, while the second takes place in the Spring term on a working morning. For both dates please book your tour ahead of time by contacting Jane Wicks in the school office on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Visiting and Tours
In the year before entry families who have registered their son for a place would follow up their initial visit with a second tour undertaken by the Headmaster. This will take place in a working day and the Headmaster can explain in more detail about the school’s practices, procedures and ethos.
Our latest prospectus is now available. For a printed copy, please enquire at email@example.com.
A copy of our academic performance is also available here.
The Early Years Team, at Keble Prep, aims to provide a stimulating, active and enthusiastic approach to the boys’ learning, through the use of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. Strong ‘Personal, Social and Emotional Development’ is embedded in everything we do in Reception as we believe that each boy can only thrive when he feels secure and happy; each boy’s well-being is at the heart of our teaching methods.
Getting an Offer
For entry Reception level, if you are supportive of the school’s ethos and aims and the Headmaster feels that your son would benefit from a Keble education, he will make an offer of a place to the family. Occasional places are also available in other year groups, with competition particularly fierce at the end of Key Stage 1. At whichever stage you are interested the procedure for entry is the same.
Scholarships and Bursaries
We offer "all-rounder" bursaries to boys from Year 3 up until Year 6. It is the intention with these bursaries to make an independent education possible for those families who could not normally consider such an option. Boys in Year 6 can also be considered for two awards which give financial support in the final two years.
We try not to have 'hidden extras' in our fee structure. Fees include lunches and four residential trips. The only additional costs are for day trips, which vary from term to term.
The school offers both a breakfast club and an after school club. The breakfast club is available five days a week and starts at 7:35am until the school day starts, while the after school club operates between 3:15pm and 6:00pm Monday to Friday.
