Please click on above links to view the Primary Common Application Form and the Primary Admissions Booklet 2017

Admissions Guidance:

  • You can apply for up to 3 schools, putting them in order of preference.  It's in your best interest to list 3 schools.  Naming only one school does not guarantee your child a place at that school or give your child priority for a place over another child, neither does naming a school more than once.
  • Applications will open on Monday 7th November 2016 and close at midnight on Monday 16th January 2017 for Primary or Infant school places (Reception year) - if your child was born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013.
