Joining Reception in the next ‘September intake’ (or beyond!)


Thank you so much for taking an interest in our school.

The following information and dates refer to the ‘September 2020 intake’ of Reception pupils.

I will update the page when information about 2021 becomes available. However, it is a good indication of what you can expect.

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 visit the schools that interest you.

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!)
