Frequently Asked Questions
When do I register my child?
Little Broomwood: Please register by the September after your child’s first birthday.
Broomwood Pre-Prep: Please register at least 18 months before entry. We have a random ballot at this stage.
Broomwood Prep – Girls and Broomwood Prep – Boys: please register by the September of the year before entry. We have Taster days and a short assessment to ensure we are the right school. This normally takes place in the January before you join.
Do you have occasional places?
Occasional places are available via school report and reference. We do give priority to siblings, Broomwood alumni and children from other Dukes schools.
Are you a selective school?
We are non-selective in the main. We do not test children for Little Broomwood or Reception.
However, further up the school, we do like to ensure that we can meet a child’s needs, so they thrive with us.
Do you support children with special needs?
Broomwood is a mainstream school, but we do have dedicated learning support team with a positive and modern approach. In line with all schools, we have some children have a diagnosis of dyslexia, ADHD, ASD etc. We approach this on a case-by-case basis. We always ask for any relevant educational psychologist reports, EHCP etc and will work with existing professionals as a team to ensure each pupil gets the appropriate support.

Where do we buy the uniform?
Our uniform is supplied online by www.schoolblazer.com. The team are very helpful and new kit usually arrives within 2 or 3 days. The Broomwood uniform is new and was introduced in September 2023 and we do not yet have a second-hand shop. However, we hope to get this up and running as soon as possible.
Do you cater for children with food intolerance/allergies?
We take great care to provide a varied and healthy diet to all our pupils. We know how very serious the consequences can be if proper protocols are not followed, and we pride ourselves in looking
after those with special dietary needs, for whatever reason. Our catering team is trained to make sure the food we serve is safe. We also provide vegan, vegetarian, halal and kosher food. For more
