We warmly welcome prospective parents and pupils to come and visit St. Augustine’s Priory. Our main entry points are Nursery, Reception, Year 5, Year 7 (11+) and Sixth Form, with entry considered in other years, subject to availability. You will gain a good sense of our community and ethos and of our academic track record by meeting our staff and some of our pupils. You will view our classrooms and facilities and our beautiful grounds which enjoy magnificent views over London. One to one meetings are held so that you can learn about our Admissions process. I look forward to meeting you.
