School Admissions

The school operates a nursery in which children are entitled to 15  hours free provision a week and start in the September after their third birthday.  If you would like to apply for a nursery place for your child please complete the form below once your child has reached 2 years.

In the September after their fourth birthday children move into the Reception classes and full time education.  You will find a copy of the current Admission Policy on the link below.

Key Stage 1 consists of Years 1 and 2 and is for pupils aged 5-7 years.

Visits to the school are warmly welcomed.  We hold open sessions for parents to visit the school in the autumn term to help in the decision making process when choosing a school for their children.
