Most of our pupils enter at Reception and at Year 3, though pupils are welcome at any age, dependent on a place being available. Places in other years are limited and in years where there are no places available we operate a waiting group.
A meeting with Mr Joe Thackway, the Headmaster, is a key part of the admissions process. We encourage prospective parents and pupils to visit us both formally and informally to get a true flavour of the school. We hold various open events throughout the year, including a specific Reception Open Evening in November, which prospective parents and pupils are most welcome to attend.
Our Registrar, Mrs Helen Morley will be
pleased to talk you through the admissions
process and current availability. Contact her on 01788 523851 or email
