In addition, we hold Open Mornings every term and you are welcome to join us then. Open Mornings give you the opportunity to see the school in action and meet staff, pupils and parents. If you would like to visit our school, please complete our book a visit form or telephone the office on 01372 721807.

Registration

It is never too soon to begin your search for the perfect school. We recommend an early view to enable registration while places are still available to avoid disappointment. Please contact the school office on 01372 721807 for advice and an Information Pack.

Upon receipt of a completed Registration Form and a non-refundable fee of £75 we will be delighted to confirm that your child has been recorded as a Registered Pre-Admissions pupil.

Entry into Nursery is in order of registration with priority given to siblings of pupils already enrolled in the school. Pupils joining our Nursery are expected to progress through the School.

If a place is available on receipt of a completed Registration Form, an Offer Letter will be sent to the applicant. We ask that the Acceptance Form is completed and returned, along with a £750 deposit, within 2 weeks in order to secure the place. The deposit will be offset against the final term’s fees and refunded as your child leaves for the next chapter of his or her journey (subject to the terms and conditions on the Acceptance Form)

Where a place is not immediately available, registered applicants will be placed on a waiting list in order of registration and we will keep in touch with our waiting families.

As part of our settling in process you and your child will be invited to our Pre-Nursery afternoon sessions on a Tuesday and Thursday, in the term prior to joining the main Nursery.

Pupils who are enrolled in our Nursery are expected to progress through the School and are given priority places in our Reception Classes.

Entry from external applicants is in order of registration with priority given to siblings of pupils already enrolled in the school. A small number of places may be available and we welcome interest for a Reception place from external families.

Where a place is not immediately available, registered applicants will be placed on a waiting list in order of registration and we will keep you informed of when a place becomes available.

As soon as a place becomes available we ask that the Acceptance Form is completed and returned, along with a £750 deposit, within 2 weeks in order to confirm and secure the place. The deposit will be refunded and offset against the final Year 2 term’s fees (subject to the terms and conditions on the Acceptance Form).

Occasionally a small number of places may become available in Year 1 and Year 2, depending on the relocation of our current families.

Do contact the school office to enquire about availability.
