How to Apply for a Place

'In Year' Applications (Years 3, 4, 5 & 6)

If you wish to apply for your child to start at school during the school year, you will need to complete an 'in year' application form.  

Surrey County Council assists us in managing our in year applications for our school and further information may be obtained from their website:

Surrey deal with the initial applications and then we will either offer your child a place or inform you if there are no places available and add your child's name to our waiting lists. 


Year 3 September 2024

This year we will be offering 90 mainstream places.

For current year 2 children, Surrey admissions recommend you apply online. 'It is quick, easy to use and secure. All the information you need is in one place, links to school websites, Ofsted, DFE, maps etc. You will receive an email confirmation that we have received your application.  You can check or change your application,  right up to the closing date.  It saves time, paper and postage."

Other Information

If you have more than one child applying for a school place you must make a separate application for each of them.

The local authority has a duty to provide a place for a child if they are out of school but it does not have to be at one of your preferred schools.

If your child has an EHCP (Education, Health and Care Plan) you will need to liaise with your child's case officer if you wish them to change school.
