Admission to Westbourne


Entry from 2½ years is determined by the following criteria:

  • That the pupil is physically, emotionally and socially ready to be away from home in a more formal learning environment.
  • That the pupil is ready to participate and progress in such an environment. In the term prior to their chosen point of entry, girls will be invited to attend a pre-admission visit, spending approximately one hour with her prospective year group to determine if she is ready to join us.

A discussion with parents will follow to agree an appropriate starting date.


Completion of the Registration Form is taken as a clear parental statement of interest in our school.

A registration fee of £75 is payable at this stage to cover administration fees and is non-refundable. Please make your cheque payable to 'Edgbaston High School'. Alternatively, speak to the Finance Assistant in the Bursary Office on 0121 454 5831 to make a payment by debit or credit card.

Early registration is recommended as there is often a waiting list for places in Westbourne Nursery. Reception, in particular, is heavily over-subscribed, so early registration is strongly recommended.

Once the registration form has been received by school you will be contacted and a suitable date will be organised for your daughter to join us for an assessment.
