Selection Details :


Admission to Main School

  • Seaton House School is single sex, admitting girls only.
  • Places: 20 pupils

In the September preceding their fourth birthday (ie: 12 months prior to their starting date for Reception) 20 girls eligible and/or registered for admittance into the Main School and will be offered a place in Reception according to the following priorities:

  • In the first instance, places will be offered to girls with older sisters who have been pupils at Seaton House School for more than 1 year prior to offers being made.
  •  Secondly, places will be offered to girls currently attending Seaton House Nursery and in the event of there being more than 20 girls, the length of time as a pupil will be taken into account.
  •  Thirdly, any remaining places will be offered in order of registration date, after a successful taster day, and at the discretion of the Headteacher.
  • In the event of more than 20 girls being eligible and current pupils, the parents of those not offered a place will be notified that their daughter’s name will remain on our waiting list.

Admission to Nursery:

Seaton House Nursery is co-educational, admitting both girls and boys. In the term before Reception, it would be expected that all children attend for at least four full school days each week

Fees :

Fees for Reception to Year VI  :  £3,600 per term

  • Week of full day sessions 8:00am – 3.15pm   :    £3,279.60 per term

If a pupil has a sibling at the school, then a 5% discount is applied to the younger sibling’s fees. Once the elder sibling leaves the school the younger sibling reverts to paying the full fee. Similarly, if three siblings are at the school then the 5% discount is applied to the younger two siblings.
