Reception

All 4 year-old children can start in reception class in the September after their 4th birthday. You must apply for these places with the local education authority the year before your child is due to start school. The school has an admissions limit of 60 children in each year group.  To apply for a place in our reception class for your child you must complete an online application form for the local education authority. It is really important to do this even if your child is already attending our nursery. Attending the nursery does not guarantee children a place in our reception class.

Use this link to the local authority website to apply for a reception place for your child.
