To help you with your choice of primary school please feel welcome to visit us. We are always happy to meet prospective parents however to make sure there is someone available, it is best to telephone the schools' admissions officer first.
We accept names for the Nursery Class waiting lists from two years old however, we cannot guarantee a place. Nursery places are then allocated to children the term after their 3rd birthday. Parents are only contacted once a space becomes available.
Children start in a Reception Class during the year before they become five years old.
