How to apply

There are two ways to apply for a place at our school:

Admissions Appeals for Reception Class 2023

Timetable for Appeals 2023-24 and appeals form will be available from the school office in due course.

 In Year Applications

An application can be made for a place for a child at any time outside the usual admissions round. An application should be made to the school by completing the in year application form (link below) and returning it to the school office. 

All applications will be considered by the governing body and a place offered if one is available.

Where there are places available but there are more applications then places, the published oversubscription criteria, as set out in the admissions arrangements for the current academic year, will be applied. Parents are advised to read the admissions arrangements carefully before making their application.

If your application is unsuccessful, you will be given the opportunity to join a waiting list and you have the right to appeal to an independent panel. 

You will be advised of the outcome of your application in writing as soon as possible. Whilst applicants must be informed of the outcome of their application within 15 school days of receipt, the aim will be to notify applicants of the outcome of their application within 10 school days of receipt.

If you have any questions in relation to in year admissions, please contact Camilla Montgomery on 0117 3772160 or email:
