warminster prep studentsTransferring to the Senior School
Warminster is an ‘all-through school’ and, providing that a pupil has achieved the correct level of progress in their studies, transfer to the Senior School is guaranteed. (See the Warminster Senior profile on page 211 for more information about the Senior School.)

Children joining the School below Year 2 do not sit formal assessments. Children joining after this point are assessed using age-standardised assessments. Warminster has a Gifted and Talented cohort as well as children that receive learning support. We pride ourselves on being a ‘broad church’ that aims to get the very most from every pupil. A 10% discount is available for HM Forces families. There is a 5% Sibling Discount. Means-tested bursaries are also available.

“Both of our daughters have thrived at the Prep School. The Prep School is nurturing and supportive and prepares pupils for the Senior School.” Mr & Mrs Hartley
