Admission Arrangements

Choosing a school for your child is a big decision and we would encourage you to talk to and visit any schools you are considering.  Prospective parents are more than welcome to look around the school and appointments to meet the Headteacher can be made very easily via the school office.

As a voluntary controlled school we follow Wiltshire Council’s policy for all admission arrangements. Please click on the links below for more information and to access the online admission form.

Entry in the Reception Year
Children usually start school in the September following their fourth birthday.  You will need to apply for a school place by the January before they are due to start school. 

We would encourage you to visit our school and talk to us when choosing a school for your child.  You can come to our Open Morning in the autumn term or you can make an appointment to look round.  Or you can do both, if you like.  Please contact the school office to make an appointment.

Our published admission number for the academic years 2021/2022 and  2022/2023 is 16 in our reception class.

Entry in Other Year Groups
If you want your child to join us in a year group other than the reception year you will need to complete a transfer form.  You can get one from us, from your child's existing school (if he/she is currently in a Wiltshire School) or from the Wiltshire Council school admissions team's web pages. The completed form should be returned to Wiltshire Council.  Please tell both us and your child's existing school that you are considering a move.
