For applications into existing year groups, a place will be offered when the number of pupils in the relevant year group is below the admission number for that year group.  The Published Admission Number (PAN) for our school is 90 children in a year group.

Please note: if a mid-year application is received during a school holiday period, we will respond as soon as possible when the school reopens.

Applications should be submitted no sooner than half a term before the planned start date.  We will endeavour to reply to your application as soon as possible, but within 15 school days.  Where a place is not available to your child, you can apply to go on the waiting list by completing the Continued Interest form available on our website below.
