WHPS welcomes applications for admission to Whippets (Boys and Girls: Grade 000 to 00), the Junior Prep (Grade 0 to 3) and to the Senior Prep (Grade 4 to 7). Applicants may apply for boarding from Grade 3 to 7. Please note that WHPS is a boys only school from Grade 0 to 7.
It is recommended that parents submit applications for Grade 000 to Grade 0 as early as possible. Interviews, play sessions (Grade 000 and 00) and assessments (Grade 0) will take place during February and March one year prior to the intended start date.
Interviews and assessments for all other grades will take place as and when a vacancy is established. It is therefore advised that parents submit applications so soon as possible if they are potentially interested in pursuing a place at WHPS for their son or sons.
Once an application is received either via the online application method or via hard copy submission your child’s name will be added to the waiting list for the grade applied for. The admissions office will be in contact you should a vacancy become available.
