Starting infant, junior and primary school in 2018

Application process

Parent/carers can now apply for their child’s school place as part of the national ‘coordinated admissions scheme’ through one application. The closing date to make an on time application is Monday 15th January 2018 and you can also apply online.

Offer Day

Offer Day (16th April 2018) is the day we inform parents/carers of their allocated school place (made on time) offered for their child.

Online Applications

All parents/carers of children who have applied on time and online for a Primary, Infant or Junior school place will receive a notification email on the morning of 16th April 2018.

This will link to your online account and we kindly ask that you await that email before contacting us. Once the email is received the place can be accepted online. Declining your offer can only be done over the phone or via email and alternative schooling arrangements must be confirmed before this is processed.

If you have forgotten your log in details for your online account please contact the Admissions Team on 01926 414143.

All other on-time Applications

For those parents/carers of children who have applied on time and for Primary, Infant and Junior school places via any other method should receive a letter on the 16th April 2018.

All letters will be sent on 13th April 2018 and whilst we anticipate these letters will be delivered on time, we are unable to control postal times once the letters have left our organisation.
