Admission Procedure

We hold a series of open sessions for both FS1 (Nursery) and FS2 (Reception) during the year. 

Our FS2 (Reception) open sessions are usually held around November in advance of the deadline for admissions to Primary School.  You are shown around the school by our Year 6 pupils and have the opportunity to speak to the Head Teacher and Foundation Stage Team Leader.

We hold FS1 (Nursery) open sessions depending on demand. FS1 pupils are visited at home by the Nursery staff and offered the opportunity to ‘stay and play’ ahead of taking up a place. 

Please contact the school office to leave your details so that we can send you an invitation to attend the relevant open sessions once dates have been finalised. 







Please contact the school office who will be happy to answer any queries or provide copies of any of the information displayed on the school's website. We also welcome any feedback you may have. You can contact or find us using any of the details shown on this page.
