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 6th November 2017 and close at midnight on Monday 15th January 2018 for Primary or Infant school places (Reception year)
