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 Thursday 5th November 2020 and close at midnight on Wednesday 15th January 2020 for Primary or Infant school places (Reception year) - if your child was born between 1 September 2016 and 31 August 2017.
