Admissions Information (applying for a school place)

School Admissions 

Applying for primary school for September 2024

If your child turns 4 between 1 September 2023 and 31 August 2024, he or she will transfer to primary school in September 2024. From Wednesday 27 September 2023 the website is open for parents who wish to apply online.

You will be notified on 16 April 2024 confirming your child's school place.

The closing date for you to submit your application is 15 January 2024.

To submit a late application

To submit a late application, please apply online, or alternatively you can contact the school admissions team at [email protected] for a paper copy.

If you wish to have your application to be considered against that school’s faith/denomination criteria then you should also complete the supplementary form which is available from the school. All preferences listed will be considered on an equal basis and, where there are more applications than the number of places available, then the oversubscription criteria will be applied(this can be found in the school's Admissions Policy below).

We welcome Parents and Carers to visit our school during an open day or open evening. We are happy to arrange an individual appointment to visit us at a different time. 

Before you apply:

  • Read the Primary Education Booklet 2024-2025, which contains useful information about the application process, including: how places will be allocated, definition of home address and how late applications will be dealt with. 
  • Consider how your child will get to school and the potential transport costs.
  • Clarify any issues you are not sure about with a member of the School Admissions team on 01744 671035 or email [email protected].
