In-Year Places

If your child has been offered a place in our school for current Year 3, 4, 5 or 6 then please contact us as soon as possible. It may be possible to arrange a brief visit to our school before your child starts to enable them to meet both their new teacher and their class.


Class teachers usually arrange to pair new pupils up with one or more 'buddies' within their class to help them settle in quickly and to find their way around the school.  Do take a look around our website to find out what our school can offer.  If you have any questions then do please contact the School Office.
