Please note that as we are a primary school, this is not a main round application, as we do not take part in the infant to junior transfer.

If you are interested in applying for a school place  at our school for Year 3 please do apply via the Hampshire website:  www.hants.gov.uk/educationandlearning/admissions  using the in-year application tile.

Our school governors have a strategic plan to grow our junior classes and so we have six additional places to offer pupils who will be moving to Year 3 each September.

We offer these places six weeks before the end of term in June each year, (this will be after you have been allocated your main round school place, which you should accept). All applications received before the offer date will be considered using our admission policy criteria, As the admissions system closes on 31 August each year you should choose an August start date.

Parents of current Year 2 children are welcome to attend the Year R information sessions, see dates above.
