Once we have your acceptance form and parental agreement, we will send you a welcome pack with all the relevant information.

Applying for a place in the Reception Class
Please note that admissions to primary school reception classes are a completely separate process from nursery classes. If you have a child on roll at nursery school he/she will not automatically be allocated a place in our school. For primary school admissions there is a different application procedure.
The closing date for admission is Friday 15th January 2021.
