If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below. 


The local County Council makes arrangements for the admission of children to our school in the Reception year (4+ year olds). 

You will need to apply for a place at the school you would like your child to attend – it doesn’t happen automatically. Even if your child already attends the nursery class of the school, or your older children go there, you will need to apply. You may not get a place at the same school if other children have priority.
