Please read our admissions policy, which also covers our over-subscription criteria (what happens if there are more applications received than the places available).
Places regularly become available in all year groups as children come and go due to family moves, particularly as we have service (RAF) families at our school. We offer fantastic pastoral care and our teachers are experienced in welcoming new children into their classes.
What is the process?

We are incredibly proud of our school. We aim to be inspiring, to nurture all our children to achieve their full potential, and to develop happy, well rounded children with a love for learning.
We have a wonderful woodland setting with an abundance of outdoor space for sports and fun like our forest school. Our outstanding staff are supported with the best available training and resources, including huge investments in 2015 in guided reading schemes and free reading books across the whole school, new IT (laptops, tablets, new ICT suites) providing us with some of the best primary school facilities in the country, and two soundproofed music studios.
We are a high achieving school - our performance in national tests, which has always been very good, is improving year on year.
