Admissions - Information for Prospective Parents

Enquiries to the school with regard to Admissions are always welcome.

Nursery and Reception places are managed by the school, however, Reception place applications must be made through your local authority.

Nursery places tend to be part-time with morning or afternoon sessions available, children attend 5 mornings or 5 afternoons per school week.  Some years, full-time places can be available, although demand usually makes part-time placements essential.

Applications for entrance to Nursery and Reception in September 2020 opened in the Autumn of 2019 and the closing date has now passed.  Allocations will be announced on the national primary offer day in April. 

For prospective applicants, we have monthly guided tours where parents can meet with a member of the leadership team and see the school during the working day.

To book on to a guided tour please visit our online tour booking system, there is no need to telephone the school, just click on "book now" on the left.  More tours can be added as we progress through the term according to demand, we offer places for six families to attend each tour.

The school Admission Policy is updated annually in line with Government requirements. The current version, along with application forms, are available to download, see below.

For admissions in September 2021 and later please book a guided tour from September 2020.

Please contact the school office regarding in-year admissions for children in Reception to Year 6, where parents require an immediate start.  We can advise you of any current vacancies or add your details to our waiting list.
