Admission Process

Six schools can be requested and should be listed in order of preference. This form needs to be returned by mid-January of the year the child is due to start school.

When the admissions section has processed all applications, they will write to parents notifying them of the school which has been allocated. These letters are sent in May of the year the child is due to start school.

Once the school has been informed which children have been allocated, we will write to parents inviting them to come to school (with their child) for a welcome meeting and to find out about the school.

To apply for a school place for children who are already of school age (including those who are already Reception class age and up to Year 6), providing we have places available in the year group required, parents and carers are requested to complete the schools Supplementary Form (to be handed or sent to the school office) and an Admission Application Form, which is available from the school office.
