Registration of your child should be made two terms before they are due to start school.  Online registration is recommended at   alternatively paper application forms can be obtained at the school office.  Online applications generally begin in November and the deadline falls in January (see above website for specific dates).

Joining Our School

The number of 'catchment' children we accommodate are low in comparison to other schools due to the local demographics. This means we often have places to accommodate 'out of catchment' children in all year groups. If you are looking for your child to move school within the academic year please contact the school office to confirm availability and arrange a visit. We will then be able to provide guidance for the next step.


Moving On
