Children normally join Broadhurst in the September after their second birthday.

Younger children attend school for three hours a day in either a morning or afternoon session. This continues until the following September, when they will generally switch to a full-day class, lasting for six hours.

Children tend to stay for two or three years until they are ready for their next school. A Reception Class for four- to five-year-olds is provided for children whose new school takes entrants in Year One.
