Thank you so much for taking an interest in our school.
In due course the Local Authority will contact you directly. They will ask you to express a number of preferences, in a ranked order. We hope to feature highly on your shortlist, and highly recommend that you watch in full our ‘Virtual Open Day’ video, currently in preparation. (See ‘Open Days’ for full details).
Parents will still need to apply even if they have children already at the school. No child will be considered for a place at any school unless they make an application to their Local Authority.
If you suspect that the Local Authority are unaware of your child’s existence (for example, you are new to the area) please contact us directly – we’ll help to make sure you aren’t missed!)
