Independent Schools In Ealing -The Ealing Mummy’s Guide

February 17, 2019
Comments Off on Independent Schools In Ealing -The Ealing Mummy’s Guide

I’m often asked what are the options for independent or private schools in Ealing? With lots of Open Days coming up this Spring, I decided now was a good time to write a blog post about Independent Schools in Ealing. We are very fortunate here in Ealing to have so many great schools. If you are looking for a co-educational school, a boy’s school, a girl’s school or a faith school, then Ealing has many options to choose from.

How do you decided where to send your child with so many choices? In my opinion the best thing to do is to attend an Open Day, that way you will get to see the school in action and even meet some of the pupils who will be happy to tell you about their own experiences of the school.

St Augustine’s Priory

St Augustine’s Priory  is a Catholic Independent Day School for girls aged 3 – 18 years and boys in the Nursery, set in 13 acres of stunning grounds. The school even has it’s own farm and forest school!

Main Points of Entry 

Nursery, Reception, Year 5, Year 7, (11+) and Sixth Form, with entry considered in other year groups subject to availability.

Pupils wishing to enter Nursery through to Prep III (Year 2) will be invited to attend classroom assessments.  Candidates wishing to enter into Lower I – Lower II (Years 3-5) will sit formal written assessments in English, Maths and Verbal Reasoning and will also spend time in the classroom as part of the entry process.
