We are very excited to announce that we have launched our Belhaven Pre-Prep for ages 5-7 years.  Click here to find out more.

The thing I like most about Belhaven is the strong family atmosphere, making sure every pupil has an area, or five, to shine in and an excellent moral code of kindness and doing your very best.

Belhaven Hill School Admissions Process

Pre-Prep admission is P1–P3 (Year 1–Year 3) and Prep admission is P4–S1 (Year 4–Year 8) for boarders and day pupils.  Children may join Belhaven at any stage in the Pre-Prep or Prep School as long as there are places available.  Early registration is therefore highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Your children can be registered at any time in advance but may be placed on a waiting list. Boarding places, in particular, can be over-subscribed and early registration is recommended. A non-refundable fee of £125 (£500 for overseas pupils) is requested on registration and a deposit of £750 to confirm your child’s entry is payable a year in advance.

There is no formal entrance examination but most prospective pupils spend a 'Taster day' and sometimes a night, at the school prior to entry. This normally happens during the summer term in groups of two or three but it can be earlier in the year, especially when a pupil is not entering the most junior form or if applying for a bursary.

The ‘taster’ day is an invaluable experience which enables school and pupil to get to know one another.  Children attend lessons, enjoy some sport and activities, and meet a few future friends. More often than not they return home full of the joys of Belhaven and eager to start as soon as possible!

For more information, please see our Admissions Policy and Procedure here.

Arrange a Visit to Belhaven

You are welcome to visit us anytime. Our website and Prospectus only provide a glimpse of life at Belhaven Hill, so we would like to invite you to visit the school to get a real feel for what makes it special. The visit will provide an opportunity to meet the Headmaster and other staff, and, most importantly, to talk to and have lunch with our boys and girls.  

We also host a number of 'Open Events' throughout the year to which prospective parents and their families are warmly invited. 

We are delighted to arrange Zoom meetings with the Headmaster at times when we are unable to welcome families to Belhaven in person or if it is more convenient for your family. 

To arrange a visit and for further information, please contact our Registrar, Olivia Reynolds: +44 (0)1368 658510

Before we sent our kids to Belhaven, we were told by many friends that we had to visit the school to understand why it was just 'so special'. Now after 6 years there as a parent, and being very involved in the school, I still can't put my finger on just one thing. It's the traditional values, the confidence, courtesy and great manners that the children leave with. It's the all round education, massive range of activities, skills and care they receive during their time. Most importantly though, it seems to be that Belhaven Hill gets the best from every child.
