Classes R - 6 In-Year Admissions (e.g. moving here from another school)

If you would like your child to attend our school, please telephone us on 01795 532779 and we will organise a meeting with Mrs Garrett, the headteacher, who will take you on a tour of our lovely school.


Class R

If your child is due to start in Class R we would normally show you around the year before your child is due to start, e.g. If your child is due to start school in September 2025, we will show parents around between September and December 2024. Please call the office to book an appointment. 



Parents and carers have the right to appeal if their child is not offered a place. For admission in September 2024, appeals  must be lodged between (dates to be confirmed) and they will be heard during the first week of June 2024. Please contact the school for an appeals pack and when complete, send you appeal to the Governance Professional at the school. The appeal will be heard by an independent appeals panel within 40 school days in accordance of the statutory guidance. For late applications, appeals are heard within 40 school days from the deadline for lodging appeals where possible, or within 30 days of the appeal being lodged.


In-Year Applications

If you would like to apply for a place during the academic year, an In-Year Application Form must be completed and sent to the school.  We will then reply informing you if there is a space.  You are very welcome to come along for a visit before completing the form; please ring the school office to make an appointment.
