Application Process

To register interest in a place at Atelier 21 for your son or daughter, you first need to complete the enquiry form below which will be directed to

Admissions Enquiry Form


Once we have received your enquiry form we will contact you to arrange a family tour. We do not select students on academic ability, but we do ensure that the whole family have similar educational values as Atelier 21 as we want to protect our culture.

The tour is an opportunity for both to ask questions and for you to get a feel for whether the school is right for you, and for us to decide if we believe your family will thrive as part of our progressive school community.

The last step is for your child to attend a taster day for free, and for the teaching staff to decide if we can offer your child a place at our school.

We won’t be looking for your child to prove they can do anything in particular, we are simply making sure they can thrive in our environment.  The vast majority of children will, but we reserve the right to politely refuse a place if we feel strongly that we can’t meet your child’s needs.

If your child has attended one of our Little Barn Owls Nurseries, your child will receive priority placing in Reception Class at Atelier 21 (availability dependent).
