Admission to reception classes for September 2017

The reception class admission round has now closed. If you still need to apply for a place for September 2017 contact the admissions team.

If you have applied online decisions will be made available on the afternoon of 18 April 2017 on the Admissions website.

A small number of parents of children with an EHCP have been sent letters reminding them to apply for a high school place for September 2017. This has been done in error and such letters should be disregarded.

Note that attendance at a nursery attached to a school does not give you any priority for a place at that school.
